[Project number 30144]

The aim is to study the role of birthweight as a mediatory factor between social disadvantage and infant mortality. We will analyse live and still births to female LS members, maternal and paternal socio-economic characteristics (mainly taken from Census data) and vital status of the infants by age 1 year.
