This is a study of child mortality in two Tanoan
pueblos. Data on mortality are arranged by age of death and compared with
comparable figures from White and Colored populations. The mortality rates are
arrived at by comparing the number of deaths with the number of infants born in
the families studied in given time intervals. Material on child and infant care
and feeding are also included and referred to when comparisons are made with
non-Indian mortality rates.
