This book, one in the series of "Vital and Health Statistics Monographs" of the American Public Health Association, is a well documented study of childhood mortality in the United States up to 1964. The data, supplemented by information from special studies, are mainly derived from vital statistics of the United States and upstate New York.

Some 80 tables and figures in the text and about half this number in the Appendix review mortality data in different age periods from 1935 to 1964, with emphasis on comparison of the years around 1950 with those around 1960 in relation to such variables as sex, birth weight, ethnic group, cause of death, age of mother, parity, geographic area, and socioeconomic group.
