Abstract

The paper examines the incidence and geographic distribution of infant deaths in Ottawa in 1901 and offers explanations for the concentration of infant deaths in the mostly French-Canadian community. Its spatial pattern is identified : areas of the highest rates have the worst living conditions. The AA. determine whether cultural factors are more or less important to the incidence of infant mortality than economic factors
