Additional Comments: Abstract: Adverse birth outcomes are important predictors of long-term health and socioeconomic outcomes. Birth weight is a common measure of health at birth, such that low birth weight (<5.5lbs) is associated with neurodevelopmental problems, poorer cardiovascular health, and lower levels of educational attainment and earnings in later life. Recent studies identify that maternal disadvantages and stressors across the life course contribute to the intergenerational transmission of inequality through birth weight. Using nationally representative data of singleton births from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health, this study examines the processes that contribute to the intergenerational transmission of inequality through birth weight across race.
