Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Infant mortality data for England and Wales, cross classified by mother's age, parity and social class were published for 1949/50 and 1975. Previous analyses of these data have been based on graphical, tabular and logit models of stillbirths, neonatal and post-neonatal deaths separately. This paper summarizes the overall changes in infant mortality using a multilogit model. The model selected is illustrated by appropriate graphical presentations.
