These two volumes comprise a mass of uninterpreted statistics covering most aspects of man's mortal life in these United States. Part 1 of this two volume survey sketches the "natality, mortality, marriage, divorce, morbidity and life table data" for the United States and its territories. Part 2 attempts to clearly elucidate the actual site (state and occasionally county) of origin for the natality and mortality tables generally presented in part 1. These two volumes were compiled under the supervision of a physician, and their impressive data should suggest the pace and direction of American life.
