Factors in infant mortality in the State (exclusive of New York City.) It is instructive to consider the various causes of death under one year of age. The following table shows, for the State outside of New York City, the number of male and female deaths from the chief causes under one year of age stated as ratios to male and female births, respectively.

In each of these three years, the male rate for all causes has been about 20 above the rate for females. One-half of this excess is charged to those causes existing, or produced, at birth. During these years, the greatest reduction for any specified cause was in the rate for diarrhea and enteritis.

Marriages Marriages in New York State in 1917 numbered 104,800, or 20.0 persons marrying per 1,000 total population at all ages. This rate is one of the highest recorded in any year since registration began. The rates for 1916 and 1915 were 18.9 and 18.0, respectively. By five year periods, the movement of the marriage rate has been as follows:

Refined marriage rate. The marriage rates just presented are ratios of persons marrying per 1,000 total population. If all persons under 15 years of age and all married persons are eliminated from the denominator in this ratio, there result refined marriage rates per 1,000 population among whom marriage is possible, i. e., single, widowed, and divorced persons 15 years old and over.

STATISTICAL TABLE

PRESENTING AND ANALYZING THE RESULTS OF REGISTRATION OF

BIRTIS, DEATHS AND MARRIAGES IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND ITS SUBDIVISIONS DURING THE YEAR 1917, WITH COMPARATIVE DATA FOR PREVIOUS YEARS*

* Prior to 1914 the original certificates of births and deaths were not filed with the State Department of Health from the cities of New York, Albany, Buffalo and Yonkers, the data for those cities included in the reports of the State Department being based upon the compilations prepared monthly by the respective local registrars of these cities.

Beginning January 1, 1914, the State Department of Health has been receiving the original certificates of births and deaths from all cities, towns and villages in the State, excepting only New York City. Unless otherwise indicated, therefore, the compilations presented in the monthly bulletins and annual reports of the Department since 1914 are based upon the data given on the original certificates, except for New York City, the figures for which are supplied monthly by the Registrar of Records of the New York City Department of Health.
