Content descriptions

General Note:
"November 1973."
"An analysis of countervailing changes in components of the nearly stable crude death rate during 1950-69, trends of age-adjusted and age-specific death rates by color and sex, and changes in sex and color differentials for mortality by age. Important trends include the rise in the death rate for young people 15-24 years of age, the fall in the death rate for older Americans 45 years and over, and the upturn in the level of excess mortality for young men, particularly for other-than-white young men."
