Spatial patterns of mortality in Bangladesh.
This paper depicts the spatial patterns of mortality of the administrative upazilas of Bangladesh.
Due to the absence of adequate data on mortality rates from across the country, the mortality rates of the upazilas are calculated from the age sex structure of the population of the respective upazilas employing the standardized mortality rates of divisional headquarters.
Crude death rates are used to determine spatial patterns of mortality in Bangladesh.
The patterns portray strong regional differences.
Such differentiation is accounted for by traditional differences in demographic and socio-economic factors.
Also, regression analysis is used to assist in explaining spatial variations.
