Abstract or Summary
  • The relationships between infant mortality and four socio-economic factors were determined for the United States using visual comparisons of isopleth maps and linear regression analysis. The four socio­economic factors were per capita income, the percent of the population that is Negro, the per cent of the popu­lation that has a high school education or more, and the per cent of the population that resides in urban areas. No relation was found between infant mortality and the per cent urban. Infant mortality is related positively with per cent Negro and inversely with per capita income and the percentage of high school completion. These three relationships were statistically significant but none were considered meaningful in terms of predicting infant mortality.
