Detroit leads in risky births

Detroit Free Press, August 7, 2008
Detroit babies are coming into the world earlier and less healthy than babies in other major cities, according to a national report of factors leading to infant death. The report by Kids Count covers numbers over a 15-year period ending in 2005. The report also found that Detroit mothers-to-be smoked more, were younger and had little prenatal care compared to mothers in other cities.
