Infant deaths in California hit record low

From the Los Angeles Times.

Infant mortality in the state has dropped to a record low but racial disparities persist, according to the California Department of Public Health.

The rate of death among infants a year old or less decreased from 4.9 per 1,000 live births in 2009 to 4.7 deaths in 2010. Statistics for 2011 are not yet available.

Infant mortality dropped most dramatically among blacks, but their rates continue to be much higher than whites.
