Infant Deaths Drop in U.S., but Rate Is Still High

By GARDINER HARRIS
Published: October 15, 2008

WASHINGTON — Infant deaths in the United States declined 2 percent in 2006, government researchers reported Wednesday, but the rate still remains well above that of most other industrialized countries and is one of many indicators suggesting that Americans pay more but get less from their health care system.

Infant mortality has long been considered one of the most important indicators of the health of a nation and the quality of its medical system. In 1960, the United States ranked 12th lowest in the world, but by 2004, the latest year for which comparisons were issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that ranking had dropped to 29th lowest.

This international gap has widened even though the United States devotes a far greater share of its national wealth to health care than other countries. In 2006, Americans spent $6,714 per capita on health — more than twice the average of other industrialized countries.

Um, you guys are actually told that?

Youre system is held up in the rest of the world as an example of the most expensive with the lowest returns.

It's Republican rhetoric.

If 'they' are telling anything to you, there is an agenda and it does not favor you. Sorry to say it but it's true. Look around.

Your infant mortality rate which is also used as a health indicator, is the highest of all the industrial nations.


It's part of the Federal Gene Pool Pollution Plan, pay skanks to breed like flies, and you get a high infant mortality rate.

Last I looked at least we have a lower infant mortality rate than Pakistan.

Was that before or after Pakistan's earthquake and flood?
