This paper will discuss the effects of exposure to pollution, in particular particulate matter, on infant mortality rates in the United States. Other variables that are considered are statewide unemployment rate, disposable income per capita, race, education level, and public official corruption. It is determined that pollution is significant to infant deaths in the U.S. However, the secondary independent variables are deemed insignificant.
