Rodriguez, Bound, and Geronimus find presidential party and infant mortality linked

a PSC In The News reference, 2016

"Infant mortality rates in the US seem to go up during a Republican presidency and down during a Democrat presidency" - Quartz. 11/15/2016.

In asking what a change in presidential administration will mean for the health of infants, this piece cites a study by Javier Rodriguez, John Bound, and Arline Geronimus that found a correlation between infant mortality rates and the party of the U.S. president: When Republicans are in office, infant mortality rates tend to go up.
