We call these racial groups for brevity, realizing that Latinx is sometimes considered an ethnicity rather than a race. We examined racial differences separately for men and women and compared groups on attitudes and behaviors. For more details on our models, see the Technical Appendix at the end of this post. On some values and aspirations, racial groups seem remarkably alike. Racial groups also differ little in their ideas of the best age to do these things, with the average age seen as ideal for marriage between 25 and 28 for all groups and the average ideal age for having a first child between 27 and
Reference intervals RIs for common clinical laboratory tests are usually not developed separately for different subpopulations. Compared to whites, the normal range for Asians significantly shifted to higher values in globulin and total protein and to lower values in creatinine, hematocrit, hemoglobin, mean cell hemoglobin, mean cell hemoglobin concentration, and mean platelet volume. The RIs have an important role in clinical practice in screening for diseases, assessing disease progression and treatment response. The use of accurate RIs can reduce disease misdiagnosis and improve patient care. Hispanics were found to have similar RIs as whites in WBC, absolute neutrophil counts 17 and albumin. The data were collected from surveys, examinations, and laboratory tests.
