Missing Units

In the article, “Epidemiological Transition in Urban Maharashtra” by Anjali Radkar, Tara Kanitkar and Madhushree Talwalkar (25 September), Table 1 gives the crude birth rate, crude death rate and the infant mortality rate. The fi gures do not indicate whether the units are per centages or something else. Demographers may know how to interpret the numbers but not lay readers. Likewise, in Table 3, it is not indicated if the columns or rows are distributions out of 100.

I wish the tables had been clearer.
