Relationships Between Birth Weight and Selected Social, Environmental, and Medical Care Factors
Lewis, Robert; And Others
American Journal of Public Health, 63, 11, 973-981, Nov 73

It was suggested that birth weight statistics may be more effective than infant mortality statistics for many purposes where death data are now used. (EH)
