Abstract
It is the opinion of most Alaskan consultants that many Native children need tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies to prevent otitis media, mastoiditis, and hearing loss. This study was designed to obtain an unbiased, statistical test of the validity of these clinical impressions and opinions. The survey was financed by the U.S. Children's Bureau and carried out mainly by consultants to the Washington State Department of Health and to the Alaska Department of Health.
