Author(s): Jelena Čvorović, J. Philippe Rushton, Lazar Tenjevic
Abstract:

A significant negative correlation (r = −0.26) is found between maternal IQ measured by the Raven’s Matrices and child mortality in 222 Serbian Roma (Gypsy) women.

Measles outbreak in Bulgaria: poor maternal educational attainment as a risk factor for medical complications
Author(s): Lim T-A, Marinova L, Kojouharova M, Tsolova S, Semenza C J
Abstract:

An 8-year era of interrupted indigenous measles transmission in Bulgaria came to an end in April 2009 when a large epidemic occurred that would eventually claim 24 253 cases and 24 deaths; infants, children and young adults of the Roma community were disproportionally affected. Compared with Western Europe, case-fatality rate and proportion of medical complications were uncharacteristically high.
