An attempt was made to determine whether socio-economic factors were related to the incidence of the water-borne disease gastroenteritis in two housing areas within the town of San German in southwestern Puerto Rico. By the use of a questionnaire survey made in a substandard housing area and one made in a housing project, the author elicited income and education level information from the inhabitants. Socio-economic data were compared with the number of cases of the disease treated at the public health center from each area. The results were inconclusive. (WRSIC abstract)
