This pamphlet of 176 pages contains a report dealing with the problem of reducing infant mortality as carried on in ten of the largest cities of the United States, together with details of a demonstration by public and private agencies in New York City during 1011 to determine the value of milk-station work as a practical means of reducing infant mortality. Among the subjects discussed are the factors concerned in the waste of infant life, a summary of what has been done in New York in recent years along this line; the results obtained in New York City as a whole, in 1911, the results obtained at individual milk stations, and a comparison of the figures obtained in New York with those of nine other large cities. This information is set forth in the text, in tabulated form and by graphic representations in the form of charts, curves and pictures.
