to study infant mortality
By Josh Knaub
Gov. Mike Johanns said Wednesday
that he will appoint a panel to study
Nebraska’s infant mortality rate.
Nebraska’s rate has been higher
than the national average in four of the
past six years.
Johanns said although the rate has
declined over the past decade,
Nebraska’s progress has stalled.
The infant mortality rate measures
the number of children who die before
their first birthday.
In 1998, Nebraska’s rate was 7.3
deaths per 1,000 infants. The national
average was 7.0 deaths per 1,000
Richard Raymond, Nebraska’s chief
medical officer, will be on the panel that
will also include experts in prenatal,
infant and family care.
Raymond said Nebraska’s infant
mortality rate was cause for concern.
“Why is Nebraska’s rate higher? We
don’t know,” Raymond said.
Raymond said the mortality rate of
infants 28 days and older has decreased,
but the rate for children younger than 28
days had increased. Raymond said the
increase was ominous and that he
expected the panel to focus on infants
younger than 28 days.
In a report, Raymond said areas
such as quality of care, multiple birth
rates and the difference between rural
and urban mortality rates needed to be
examined by the panel.
The panel also will include one
salaried position for a medical statisti
cian who will examine the correlation
between high instances of infant mortal
ity and risk factors specific to Nebraska.
Some of these factors include use of
available prenatal care and nitrate levels
in drinking water.
The state has applied for a federal
grant to pay for thisTposition, but
Johanns did not rule out use of state
funds in case the grant is denied.
“Even without federal backing, we
will find a way to fund (this panel),”
Johanns will appoint panel mem
bers during the next 45 days.
“I would be more than willing to try
to find funding,” Johanns said. “This is

E.J. Green, a junior English

agreed with the idea of leaving the
sidewalks for pedestrians if riders
were given space on the streets.
“Bikers should have their own
