  1. Child survival in Beirut during wartime : Time trends and socio-religious differentials.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Child mortality estimates in Beirut are presented for the late 1970s and the mid 1980s, and changes in socio-religious differentials of mortality across time are investigated.

    Methods

    Baseline information was obtained from maternity registries in Beirut in 1984 and 1991.

    Age of mother, number of children ever born and number of children alive, hospitalization class (1,2 or 3 within each hospital, depending on the room rate, the services and the doctor's fees), and religion of newborn was recorded.

    Brass and Macrae's technique was used to convert the proportion dead among children ever born to mothers in age group 30-34 into 5q0 estimates for the reference periods 1978 (1984 data) and 1985 (1991 data).

    Using hospitalization class as a proxy for social class, religious differentials in child mortality were explored by logistic regression analysis within each period.

    Results

    Overall, 5q0 is estimated at 46 per 1000 in the late 1970s, and at 36 per 1000 in the mid 1980s.

    The religious differentials in 5q0 mortality estimates were quite large in the former period, with a risk for Muslims relative to Christians of 1.53, which declined to 1.35 in the latter period. (...)
