Maternal Mortality in the United States
Lee, Anne S.
Phylon, 38, 3, 259-66, Sep 77
Figures from 1800 through 1973 are used to demonstrate that black women have had substantially higher rates of death in childbirth than white women. As mortality has declined, the relative difference between whites and blacks has actually increased. Factors affecting mortality and future prospects for reducing maternal deaths are discussed. (GC)
