Structural Determinants of Infant Mortality in Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan America.
Clarke, Leslie L.; And Others
Rural Sociology, v59 n1 p84-99 Spr 1994
A model of the impact of structural advantage and disadvantage on infant mortality rates was developed and fitted to county-level data. Advantage and disadvantage had significant direct effects on infant mortality in urban areas but had smaller indirect effects in rural areas, being mediated by rates of teenage childbearing and low birth weight.
