    An analysis of rising mortality among men by cause presented separately for white men and for men of other races.

    Excluding the sharp peaks in the mortality curve reflecting the pandemic of influenza in 1918-19 and subsequent severe epidemics of influenza and pneumonia in a number of other years, the trend of the death rate for the United States was clearly downward during 1900-1950. Then the death rate leveled off and remained almost stationary during 1950-60. Moriyama 1 began to ask if the stationary level was transitory or whether it marked the beginning of a new uptrend in mortality. An analysis of age-color-sex specific death rates for the period 1948-68 answers the question at least for male persons. For both white men and those of other races, for most age groups beginning with 15-19 years, the course of mortality was indeed upward in the 1960's (tables 1 and 2).
