MetadataShow full item record
[From Introduction]: This report is less extensive than the previous Summaries of Four-Year Reports on Health Conditions in the Americas with respect to the health problems included. The largest chapters are concerned with demography and vital statistics and with hospital services in the Region. Population characteristics have been emphasized at this time since data from recent censuses are now becoming available. The new demographic information presented is of considerable significance and use in the health field. Information on numbers of hospitals and hospital beds in the Region is more nearly complete than in the past. Through use of data for selected countries it has been possible to present a more comprehensive picture of hospital utilization than in earlier publications.
