no. 2, April 2022
This rejoinder is written in response to the comment by Cutler and Miller (hereafter CM) on our paper, "Reexamining the Contribution of Public Health Efforts to the Decline in Urban Mortality" (Anderson, Charles, and Rees 2022). In their comment, CM acknowledge making unambiguous data transcription errors when constructing the infant mortality rates, assess the sensitivity of their filtration estimates to alternative intervention dates, and defend the population denominators they used to construct total mortality rates. In this rejoinder, we focus on the third issue, the population denominators.
Anderson, D. Mark, Kerwin Kofi Charles, and Daniel I. Rees.
