Fom the table above it can be observed that the mode for the birth weight, gstation, mther’s age, mther’s height and weight and whether mother smoked 284, 18, 157, 50 and 0 respectively.

Fom the above tables 1, 2 3, ad 4 at the appendix it can be seen that there is a slight relationship between the mother’s height and the weight of the baby at birth.
