Not illustrated. 1912 edition. Excerpt: ...MASS., AND IN BLACKBURN, ENGLAND. Figures for Blackburn are compiled from Annual Reports upon the Health of Blackburn. It will be seen that here, as in the comparison between the infantmortality rates of Fall River and England and Wales, the Fall River rates are excessive and the excess is almost entirely due to the great number of deaths from diarrhea, enteritis, and gastritis. The death rate from this cause in Fall River was three times that in Blackburn in 1910 and more than two and one-half times that in Blackburn in the ten-year period 1901 to 1910. Another important difference is in the mortality from premature birth, congenital debility, and congenital defects. Here, again, the rate in Fall River is considerably in excess of that in Blackburn. It is probable that this is due in large part to the inclusion under congenital debility of a considerable number of deaths which, more accurately reported, would have been placed under diarrhea, enteritis, and gastritis. The death rates for.pneumonia, bronchitis, and laryngitis are almost precisely the same in Blackburn and in Fall River, but in both places the rate is considerably higher than that shown for England and Wales in a preceding table. DEATH RATES AT DIFFERENT AGES UNDER 1 YEAR PES 1,000 BIRTHS BY CAUSES, FALL RIVER AND ENGLAND AND WALES. The comparisons of the preceding tables have shown in what causes the infant-mortality rates of Fall River were excessive. A somewhat clearer understanding of the character of the excess in rates may be obtained by a comparison of the age at death as well as the cause of death. Such a comparison is made between England and Wales and Fall River in the table which follows: COMPARISON OF DEATH RATES AT DIFFERENT AGES UNDER 1 YEAR PER 1,000 BIRTHS, more
