Dominican women in NYC head the list of live births

Dominican women living in New York City gave birth to 8,039 babies in 2015, according to a study revealed earlier this week by the NYC Health Department. The number of births by Dominican women is followed by the Chinese women who gave 7911 births.  Statistics of the number of births from other immigrants in the US are: Mexicans at 2725, Ecuadorians at 2646 and Bangladesh at 2646.

At the same time, the report confirms that life expectancy has increased by nine years over the past 25 years for New York City residents. The report says that city residents now have a life expectancy of 81.2 years. In 1990 this number was 72.4 years.

As usual, women are expected to live five years more than men, 83.5 years for women and 78.6 years for men.

In an interesting note also to be found in the Diario Libre article, Hispanic people have a probability of living a year more than Americans (either white at 81.3 years or black at 77.3 years) at 82.4 years.

The report goes on to say that the mortality rate in New York City decreased by 16% between 2006 and 2015, and it fell by 19% for those less than 65 years old.

Birthrates among adolescents also felt by 47% since 2006 and infant mortality was lowered by 27% over the same period.
