Better data can save the lives of Texas mothers.
What makes Texas famous? Ranches? Oil? Breakfast tacos?

It's true that far too many Texas mothers die during pregnancy or within a year following giving birth and that African-American Texans are at greatest risk. However, a new study has found that the data underlying these disturbing headlines is imprecise, with the study's co-author noting that she was surprised at "just how bad the data was" ("Bid to halt maternal deaths hurt by bad data," Page A1, Jan. 4).
