Almost all U.S. infant mortality cases occur within the Medicaid population...
While I may tend to believe your stat, can you point me to some statistical site that supports your statement?

The contributors to infant mortality are well known. Low birth weight, poverty, poor diet, smoking, teen pregnancy, etc. This data from Kansas is not an exhaustive comparison of Medicaid vs. Non-Medicaid infant mortality, but does bring up some important diferences that can be extrapolated.
