    Article - En anglais

    This article investigates the interrelationship of socioeconomic status, anthropometric status and mortality of young children in rural Bangladesh.

    Data for this study come from Matlab, the vital registration area of the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh, where anthropometric and socioeconomic data concerning 1976 children aged 12-23 months were collected in November-December 1975.

    From these data, anthropometric indices are created, and the relationships of socioeconomic status measured by dwelling space and anthropometric indices with mortality during the 2 years following measurement of these children are investigated.

    It is found that both socioeconomic status and anthropometric indices are related to mortality.
