Infant and child mortality determinants in Bangladesh : Are they changing ?
From the data of the 1989 Bangladesh Fertility Survey, aggregate deaths reported at ages 0-12 and 13-60 months are used to estimate infant and child mortality.
Multivariate analysis shows that preceding birth interval length, followed by survival status of the immediately preceding child, are the most important factors associated with differential infant and child mortality risks ; sex of the index child and mother's and father's education are also significant.
Demographic factors are influential during infancy as well as childhood, but social factors, particularly mother's and father's education, now emerge as significant predictors of infant mortality risks.
This indicates a change in the role of socioeconomic factors, since the earlier Bangladesh Fertility Survey in 1975.
