Abstract

The high rate of tuberculosis among the Negro race has been the subject of frequent discussion. Statistical evidence has established the fact that in all parts of the United States the mortality of the Negro race from tuberculosis is considerably above that of the white race. Drolet1 pointed out that in New York City, where Negroes form only 5 per cent of the total population, they furnish 20 per cent of the mortality from tuberculosis, and that in the United States registration area during the year 1929 the death rate from tuberculosis among white baby boys was 48 per hundred thousand, whereas among colored baby boys it was 106 per hundred thousand. For the purpose of illustration table 1, which is taken from Drolet's article, is of interest. Sydenstricker,2 Whitney,3 Weiner,4 Opie,5 Aronson,6 Smith7 and others have brought forth similar statistical evidence. The
