Only 125 persons of every 1,000 in
the registration era ot continental Unit
ed States died In 1919, according to the
bulletin on mortualily statistics Issued
bi the Census Bureau. This is the low
est rate recorded since the establishment
of the registration area and forms a
striking contrast with the unusuall) high
rate for 1913 due to the epidemic of in
fluenza when the death rate reached 18
per 1,000. In 1915 the death rate was
1X5 per 1.000.
The death registration area in 1919
comprised thirty three states, the Dist
rict of Columbia and eighteen cities in
non registration states wiih an estimated
population of 85.1 17,852, or alout 81
pe cc-it of the total population of the
''The most important cause for the le-
rrwse , said ,Prof. A,. F. Kuldinan of
the sociology department of the Uniters
it), "lies in the fact that the influenza
epidemic took away a great number of
the jieople who were so weak constitu
tionally that they would hate died in
1919 of other diseases. The death rates
for the next few years will be materially
decreased by the influenza epidemic each
succeeding year being affected Ies3
Another reanon for the decrease is the
public health programs which are being
carried on in various places in the United

in Jasper County, where intensive pub
he health work has been carried on for
one year under the State Board of Health
through the county health officers, the
number of deaths was only half that of

javing of 602 lives in a single year bv

In Greene County the public health
