By an examination of the above, the following result will be seen : Of the 1,017 children who died under one year, 96 or 9.43 per cent. died on the day of their birth ; of these, 80 were of foreign parentage. Of the whole number that died under one year, 383 or 37.65 per cent. died between six months and one year. Of this number the children of foreign parents comprise 303 or 79.11 per cent. Those dying under six months, number 634 or 14.90 per cent. of all the deaths, and of which the children of foreign parents number 437 or 68.92 per cent.
