53:20786 Zahniser, Christine; Halpin, George; Hollinshead, William; Kessel, Samuel; Koontz, Ann. Using linked birth and infant death files for program planning and evaluation: NIMS workshop lessons. Public Health Reports, Vol. 102, No. 2, Mar-Apr 1987. 211-6 pp. Washington, D.C. In Eng.
As part of the U.S. National Infant Mortality Surveillance (NIMS) project, a workshop for maternal and child health directors explored the use of linked birth and infant death data for program planning and evaluation. The authors urge the use of linked files because "assessment of the birth weight distribution of live births, birth weight specific-mortality risks, distribution of deaths by birth weight, and birth weight-specific causes of death can help identify problems in the childbearing population and with the delivery of health services."
