  • Description:
    These are the papers presented at the International Symposium on Perinatal and Infant Mortality, held in Bethesda, Maryland, in 1990. The meeting was sponsored by the International Collaborative Effort on Perinatal and Infant Mortality, created by the National Center for Health Statistics to examine reasons for the relatively poor international ranking of the United States in perinatal and infant mortality. Most of the papers are based on a standardized, birth-weight specific, data set covering birth cohorts from 1980 to 1985. They provide insights into sources of differences in infant and perinatal mortality among participating developed countries, and are grouped under the headings: health care and services; relation of cultural and social factors to pregnancy outcomes; birthweight, gestational age, and age at death; cause of death; and infant survival and preventable mortality.
