Katherine Eriksson's research on historic infant mortality rates featured in distinguished monthly NBER Digest

Katherine's work, along with co-authors, documents that the well known gap in infant mortality rates between black and white infants is not as large as previously thought because of under-registration of births, predominantly among blacks.
