        Surviving Year One | America by the Numbers: Episode 7

        Babies in Rochester, New York, are dying at a rate almost twice the national average. Learn about some of the possible social and economic reasons for that in this full episode of America by the Numbers. The United States ranks 56th lowest in the world for infant mortality, but studies have shown that mothers of color are more than twice as likely as white mothers to lose their babies before their first birthday. Explore some possible explanations for those findings, and witness the programs in Rochester working to reverse those disparities.
