After two decades of steady progress to reduce the rate of infant mortality in the U.S., the 1980s witnessed a dramatic reversal of this trend.

It examines the extent to which the implementation of selected health and social policies of the Reagan administration contributed to the increase in the occurrence of infant deaths.
