    • Abstract:
      Infants born in Tennessee between 1984 and 1988 experienced reduced mortality compared with those born in the 5 years previous. For all birthweight singleton infants, the reduction from 10.2 to 8.4 deaths per 1000 live births represents an 18% decline in mortality. The most impressive gain made was for very low birthweight (less than 1500 g) infants in the neonatal period, where mortality was reduced 24%. However, for these infants there was nearly a sixfold increase in the postneonatal mortality associated with prematurity-related causes. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
