Abstract

Proposes a new analytical framework for the study of child survival in developing countries, incorporating both social and biological variables and employing methods of social and medical sciences. The framework includes the use of a single-valued measure of morbidity and mortality. Five intermediate variables are identified through which all socioeconomic factors affect child survival: maternal factors, environmental, nutritional, injury, and personal illness control measures. The proposed health status index combines population weight-for-age with the mortality level of the respective cohort.-A.L.Creese (CDS)
