Can you relate socio economic status to infant mortality rates?

    Yes there is an inverse ratio between socioeconomic status and infant mortality rates in America and around the world. The ratio has remained so for at least the past 40 years in America.  Lower socioeconomic status has a higher infant mortality rate and this fact has only intensified in recent years. Although infant mortality rates in America have been steadily declining, the chances of an infant dying to a low income family have continued to increase to this day.

    This is a large point that has been made with the new health care bill that as been trying to pass in the United States. Some feel that the reason for this occurring is the because those who have sick children and are economically challenged, can’t afford the tools they need to seek health care.
