Assessments of mortality, morbidity, and nutritional status in Somalia during the 1991-1992 famine : recommendations for standardization of methods.
- To evaluate the various survey methods used in Somalia between 1991 and early 1993 while assessing documentation of mortality and malnutrition rates and common causes of morbidity and mortality.
Twenty-three population surveys were identified from the Center for Public Health Surveillance for Somalia, the United Nations Children's Fund, and other humanitarian organizations.
- Only surveys with defined populations and apparently systematic methodology that focused on mortality, morbidity, and/or nutritional status were included.
- Extensive methodological differences were found among the 23 surveys.
Target populations and sampling strategies varied widely.
Twelve studies were considered not reproducible.
