Preponderance of Female Deaths.

JAMA. 2003;289(1):112. doi:10.1001/jama.289.1.112-a

Medical News.


The abnormal preponderance of deaths among females, 305, to 293 males, in the week ended December 27, is accounted for by the health department by "the defective street car service, with its frequent breakdowns at a season of the year when thousands of women, at a high pitch of nervous tension over the holiday shopping, have been kept waiting for hours exposed to the inclemencies of the weather."
