Health Disparities among Racial and Ethnic Groups in Rhode Island
The health of racial and ethnic minority populations has been a focus of public health for many years, due to the disparities in health status, exposure to health risks, and access to health care that are revealed when these populations are compared to the White, non-Hispanic population. At the national level, the impact of poor health on the quality and length of life for minority citizens was considered to be so fundamental that one of the three overarching goals of Healthy People 2000 was to
A methodological note on modeling the effects of race: the case of psychological distress
Psychological distress is an important indicator of the mental well-being of the population. Findings regarding racial differences in distress are inconclusive but may represent an important pathway through which disparities exist across a number of physical health outcomes. We used data from the 1994 Minority Health Survey, a nationally representative multiracial/ethnic sample of adults in US households, to examine racial/ethnic differences in psychological distress (n = 3623). Our primary stud

Geometry of nonlinear connections
We show that locally diffeomorphic exponential maps can be defined for any second-order differential equation, and give a (possibly nonlinear) covariant derivative for any (possibly nonlinear) connection. We introduce vertically homogeneous connections as the natural correspondents of homogeneous second-order differential equations. We provide significant support for the prospect of studying nonlinear connections via certain, closely associated secondorder differential equations. One of the mos
