The Women’s Health Data Book

The lengthy report on the status of women’s health in the U.S. draws the most recent data from countless resources together in one book, with information often broken into age categories. The report shows that two serious health concerns – obesity and HIV/AIDS – have plagued African-American women in particular. High prevalence of obesity among black women has placed them at the highest risk for cardiovascular disease, the number one cause of death among American women. Recent data on AIDS show that women account for 23 percent of all U.S. cases, up from 7 percent in 1986. 219 pages. Free. Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, 2400 Sand Hill Rd., Menlo Park, CA 94025.
