Using the South University Online Library, select and read five articles in peer-reviewed journals, such as Journal of Epidemiology, Journal of Environment Health, and Journal of Applied Epidemiology, on medical causes of infant mortality.

Aspects of Infant Mortality Rate

Task 1–Infant Mortality Rates (20 pts)

The U.S. has higher infant mortality rates than other developed nations. In the course project, you will examine many aspects of this issue.

Begin your investigation of infant mortality rates in the U.S. by gathering and analyzing statistical data.

  • Gather data about infant mortality rates in various countries. Identify five countries that have the lowest infant mortality rates and five countries that have the highest infant mortality rates.
  • Find out the infant mortality rate in the U.S. and discuss where the U.S. ranks internationally.

Note: Using tables is a helpful approach when presenting numerical data.

Task 2–Medical Causes of Infant Mortality (20 pts)

Using the South University Online Library, select and read five articles in peer-reviewed journals, such as Journal of EpidemiologyJournal of Environment Health, and Journal of Applied Epidemiology, on medical causes of infant mortality.

Write an annotated bibliography of the five articles, which should include a one-paragraph summary of each article. Write original summaries; do not merely copy the abstracts. In each of your summaries, include the following:

  • The study’s hypothesis or objective
  • The study’s methodological approach
  • The study’s pertinent findings and conclusions

Task 3–Social, Economic, and Cultural Determinants (20 pts)

Using the South University Online Library, select and read five articles in peer-reviewed journals, such as Journal of Epidemiology and American Journal of Public Health, on socioeconomic/cultural causes of infant mortality.

Write an annotated bibliography of the five articles, which should include a one-paragraph summary of each article. Write original summaries; do not merely copy the abstracts. In each of your summaries, include the following:

  • The study’s hypothesis or objective
  • The study’s methodological approach
  • The study’s pertinent findings and conclusions

Task 4–Analysis (100 pts)

Using the information gathered, write a 2- to 3-page report about effective measures to curb infant mortality rates. Consider necessary policy changes using specific evidence from your research as a guide. Note: It may be helpful to review strategies employed by nations with low infant mortality rates. Cite sources of information in the correct APA format.

Present all your work in a 3-page Microsoft Word document. Be sure to use APA format
