Sir.—Regarding the otherwise eloquent editorial "Continuing Challenges in Reduction of Neonatal Mortality" by Avery and Wise (Journal 1983;137:321-322), I doubt that either Maine or Mississippi will accept a ten-fold error in reporting their infant mortalities, which are 8.7 per 1,000 live births and 15.9 per 1,000 live births, respectively.
