  1. Social and economic factors related to breast-feeding durations in Tanzania.

    Article - En anglais

    Some social and economic factors related to breast-feeding durations in Tanzania are analysed using current status data taken from the 1991-92 Tanzanian Demographic and Health Survey.

    Proportional hazards and proportional odds models are estimated.

    The results show that breast-feeding durations vary according to the region of residence of the mother and child (and whether they are living in a rural or an urban area), the age of the mother at the time of the birth, the order of the birth, and the mother's religion.
