[QUOTE=doggin94it;4248472]Terrible stat to rely on - we report as "infant death" any baby, of any gestational age or size, that dies after exhibiting signs of life (heartbeat, pulse, breathing). Other states do not report as "infant death" babies that die after being born prematurely, babies that die after being born exceedingly small, or babies that are born with a heartbeat but never breathe.[/QUOTE]
Did this study use two different definitions for "infant death", one applied to the USA and one to the rest of the world? Please show us the evidence for that.
