Nutritional and medical records of the infants of 198 women of a low socioeconomic group were correlated with results of the Denver Developmental Screening Test. At one year, the infants' developmental age was above the norm. In addition, selected medical, nutritional, and developmental variables, as indicated by charts of the Detroit Maternity and Infant Care Project, were statistically analyzed for interrelationships. No correlation was found between hemoglobin levels, even though they were low for some infants, and developmental indexes. Prenatal weight gain of the mothers was statistically significant in relation to their infants' birth weight, height, and head circumference. Thus periodic monitoring of weight throughout pregnancy is recommended.
