Infant Mortality and Low Birthweight in North Carolina; The Last Ten Years


Author(s):
Abstract:
Between the years 1987-88 and 1995-96, considerable progress was made toward the reduction of birthweight-specific infant mortality. Expanded child and maternal care were contributing factors to the decline. However, other factors, including smoking mothers and minority race, continue to be strong predictors of low birthweight. These factors still need to be addressed.
