The article focuses on an analysis which evaluated the association between adolescent childbearing and early offspring mortality in three birth cohort studies from Pelotas in Southern Brazil. It was concluded that the social and environmental factors may be more significant than maternal biologic immaturity. As stated, no interactions between maternal age and cohort year were found.
