Hispanic race as a disease risk factor.
Description: Hispanic women, or Latinas, are a multiracial ethnic group, which means persons of Hispanic origin may be of any race. Many Hispanic women are recent immigrants. Most Hispanics in the United States are of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central American, or South American descent. In 1999, Hispanic females of any race—numbering 15.7 million—comprised slightly more than 11% (11.2%) of the U.S. female population. (Source: excerpt from The Health of Minority Women: NWHIC)
