This is a table of charts and accompanying maps giving births, infant mortality and maternal mortality in the United States and the several states for the year 1940. It is a strictly factual presentation, without any endeavor to account for the facts which it sets forth. It is a convenient and graphic reference compilation which should be useful to health officers, sociologists and others having to do with public health and welfare, particularly in the field of infancy and maternity.
