Abstract : The U.S. scientific, technical, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce makes key contributions to the nation's economic growth, national security, and other national goals. Given the importance of this workforce, monitoring and understanding its health and vitality are in the national interest. In 2003, a RAND Corporation study examined the issue of potential labor shortages in this workforce, which has been a recurring concern in federal policy circles since the 1950s. The stu...

Data from the 1976-77 MAlaysian Family Life Survey a probability survey of 1262 households in peninsular Malaysia confirmed the negative effects of poor sanitation and lack of breastfeeding. The sample for analysis consisted of 5141 infants of whom 165 died between 1 week and 1 year of age. 84% of the children were breastfed. The relative risk of dying between 1 week and 1 year of age for those who never breastfed compared with those who did is the ratio of their respective mortality rates. Both...

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...
