Analyses reveal significant differences in prevalence based on race and ethnicity
Each year, our team highlights a Key Topic that provides important context to our understanding of childhood bereavement using the CBEM. Our 2021 analyses based on race and ethnicity illuminate disproportionate incidences of childhood bereavement and underscore the need for critical and timely grief supports for children.
Derived using CDC data for the years 2015 – 2019, these results complement annual CBEM reports. Results are presented for each racial (American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian or Pacific Islander, Black or African American, White) and ethnic category (Hispanic or Latino) using specific mortality and birth data from CDC Wonder.
