The relationship of race/ethnicity to community integration and other variables was assessed in a sample of 164 adults who had lived with spinal cord injury for 2 to 47 years. Compared with blacks and Hispanics, whites were older, better educated, better off financially, less likely to have a violent etiology, less severely impaired, more physically independent, better able to access their community, and involved in more productive activities. Hierarchical regression analyses revealed that after controlling for other demographic and injury-related variables, the amount of variance in mobility and productivity accounted for by race/ethnicity was substantially reduced.
