Death with Dignity, in a Nov. 17, 2017 article, "Death with Dignity: A Report Card on Medical Aid in Dying Legislation in the United States," available at, stated:

“Members of vulnerable groups such as the poor, less educated, or racial minorities have shown little interest in this end of life care option. The percentage of patients using Death with Dignity laws who are non-white is very small. The great majority availing themselves of medical aid in dying are white, and a majority have at least a high school degree and some college education. Since education is known to correlate with income, one can assume that most Death with Dignity deaths occur among those who are relatively well-off.”
