To examine ethnic differences in infectious disease-related mortality in New Mexico's American Indian, Hispanic White and other White populations, we analyzed vital records data from 1958 to 1987. We found that for most infectious causes, American Indians had the highest mortality rates, followed by Hispanics. The state's minority populations remain at increased risk for infectious disease mortality.
