  1. Social and environmental factors and life expectancy, infant mortality, and maternal mortality rates : results of a cross-national comparison.

    Article - En anglais

    Using data from United Nations sources we conducted an international comparison study of infant and maternal mortality rates and life expectancy at birth.

    We examined these three dependent variables in relation to a range of independent variables including dietary factors, medical resource availability, gross national product (GNP/capita), literacy rates, growth in the labor force, and provision of sanitation facilities and safe water.

    Based on exploratory stepwise regression models, we fitted a series of general linear models for each of the three dependent variables.
