Analysis of mothers recall data collected in 1976-77 by a probability survey in Peninsular Malaysia shows an association between breastfeeding up to 6 months of age and improved survival of infants throughout the 1st year of life. Inappropriate sample selection and inadequate control of confounding can introduce large biases in these analyses. The magnitude and direction of these biases are presented. Even when these biases are dealt with unsupplemented breastfeeding appears more beneficial than...
