Having a Democratic president in the United States is linked with a reduction in infant mortality rates, according to a controversial new study.

That could be because a preemie that you don't try to save is not counted as an infant death.

If you try to save them and they die, then it is counted as "infant mortality."

Just another way bureaucrats play with numbers.

good point.

Numbers can be manipulated easily and the run of the mill consumer who reads that article will buy into it without a second thought.
