Abstract
Alaska had the highest rate of injury death in the United States during 1988-1992. Higher rates occurred in rural Alaska, where the majority of injury deaths were alcohol-related and among Alaska Natives. We studied the association between restrictive alcohol laws and alcohol-related injury deaths in rural Alaska where more than 70 villages prohibit the sale and importation of alcohol.

Abstract
Instead of disappearing, Alaska Eskimo and Indian villages continue to exist, but in a complex and altered form. Using the age/sex curve we find increased numbers of dependent persons in the Native population. Young adults are being attracted to the larger villages, and the smallest villages are most rapidly losing young adults, though they retain large numbers of children. It is suggested that part of the acculturative difficulty facing Alaska Eskimos and Indians is a function of a dramatically altered population structure in which proper childhood socialization is nearly impossible.

Abstract
Child mortality is very high in Greenland. In order to develop preventive strategies, information was obtained on all child deaths (0-14 years) during 1987-91. The information included medical and social data on the child, the mother, and two living control children of the same age, sex, and place of residence. A total of 225 deaths and 48 stillbirths were recorded and classified as unavoidable, avoidable in a southern-type health facility, or avoidable under local conditions. Of 214 natural deaths and stillbirths, 21% could probably have been avoided in a southern hospital, and an additional 16% could have been avoided in Greenland had the local conditions been up to standards. The establishment of a permanent infant and child death review committee is proposed.
