Adults Lacking Basic Prose Literacy Skills

Adults Lacking Basic Prose Literacy Skills

Adults Lacking Basic Prose Literacy Skills

Adults need strong literacy skills to get good jobs, stay healthy, be active in their communities, avoid human rights abuse, avoid crime, and to raise children who have strong literacy skills. The employees most in demand in the US have at least a two-year college degree. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics Special Report (2003), 75 percent of America's state prison inmates did not complete high school. Literacy begins when parents read to their children and encourage their children to read. Parents who are poor readers don't read as often to their children. When young children are not read to, they enter school less prepared for learning to read than other children.

A mother's education level affects decisions directly influencing her and her children's health. Worldwide, higher maternal education is linked to decreases in low birth weight, infant mortality, and maternal mortality. Level of education is related to children's physical health and academic outcomes, both as children and adults. Maternal education is associated with children's nutritional status and potential obesity. Children of mothers with a high school diploma or less have a higher likelihood of adolescent obesity. Higher education levels are associated with maternal reproductive decisions including contraceptive use, having fewer children, and a later age of marriage.

Carbon monoxide is a highly toxic gas. You cannot see, smell, or taste it. It is produced and released whenever fuel or other materials are burned. The use of alternative sources of fuel or electricity for heating, cooling, or cooking can cause carbon monoxide to build up in a home, garage, or camper. Carbon monoxide is found in fumes given off by fuel burners. Those can be small gasoline engines, stoves, generators, lanterns, and gas ranges or by burning charcoal and wood.

Children Under Age 18 Living in Poverty

Poverty in the early years of a child's life, more than at any other time, has especially harmful effects on continuing healthy development and well-being, including developmental delays and infant mortality. Well-being in later childhood, such as teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and educational attainment, are also influenced by early childhood poverty. Children born into poverty are less likely to have regular health care, proper nutrition, and opportunities for mental stimulation and enrichment.

Children Under Age 5 Living in Poverty

Children Under Age 5 Living in Poverty

Childhood poverty has especially harmful effects on healthy development and well-being, including developmental delays and infant mortality. Children born into poverty are less likely to have regular health care, proper nutrition, and opportunities for mental stimulation and enrichment. These factors are especially important in the very earliest years of life, because childrens' brain growth and skill development starts at early infancy. Studies document that children who live in low-income and under-educated families start to score lower on standardized developmental tests by as early as eighteen months of age. Such early setbacks are difficult to overcome.

Death from Falls Injury Data

Death from Falls Injury Data

Death from Falls Injury Data

Falls are the leading cause of unintentional (accidental) injury death among adults 65 years of age and older in the United States and in New Mexico. The majority of injuries from falls that lead to death were hip fracture and traumatic brain injury. A serious injury from a fall can limit mobility and independent living. Falls also can increase the risk of early death. Many people who fall develop a fear of falling, and may become more sedentary. Yet, most falls are preventable and not a normal part of aging.

Educational Attainment in New Mexico

Educational Attainment in New Mexico

Educational Attainment in New Mexico

A good education leads to good health in several ways. First, the more schooling people have, the more money they earn which enables them to purchase better housing in safer neighborhoods, healthier food, better medical care and health insurance, and more education. Each of these factors is associated with improved health. Each one allows individuals to move up the occupational and income ladder, giving them more prestige and power, both of which are associated with better health. High school completion is also the gateway into college, which offers even greater benefits than high school alone. Second, education facilitates healthier behavior choices by offering learners access to health information and tools to acquire help and resources, such as smoking cessation programs. Third, education helps people to acquire social support, strengthen social networks, and mitigate social stressors. The more education people have the more social support they have. Education helps people to gain a sense of control over their lives, an outcome associated with better health.
