Indices of child health status were compared for 2 British areas with similar population structure but different history of health education. Croydon in the south has had a health education unit since 1958, and has 5 times the health education expenditures currently. In contrast St. Helens began its health education services in 1975. Expenditures per capita average 9.6 P in Croydon, va 2.0 P in St. Helens (1974). The health status indices reported by the 2 areas were: live birth rate 12.9 in Croydon, va. 14.7 for St. Helens;, nervous system birth defects 3.9 vs 8.3; congenital birth defect rate 32.7 vs 33.8; stillbirth rate 10.5 vs. 13.2; low birth weight 65.9 vs. 71.2; infant mortality rate 16.2 vs. 21.3; polio and DPT immunization 80% vs. 40%.
