9780803995451: Infant Mortality in India: Differentials and Determinants

The editors provide a state-of-the-art review of the scattered Indian literature on infant mortality. A multivariate analysis assesses the relative contribution of vaccination, birth attendants, mother's literacy and poverty in explaining inter-state differences in rural infant mortality. Chapters report on community health projects and examine the correlates and determinants of infant mortality in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh.

Recensione:

'a very readable book and, despite its focus on India, it provides valuable insights into infant mortality in developing countries generally.' - People

`fulfills a long felt need of compilation of scattered literature on recent research on infant mortality in India. It would be of immense help to policy makers, social and medical scientists.... will be an asset to any serious worker in the field of infant survival. Needless to say, this book must find a place in all the medical libraries.' - Indian Paediatrics

`A collection of original essays presented at a seminar, this volume provides a comprehensive review of infant mortality as an indicator of the level of socio-economic development in India... The inter-disciplinary dialogue between social scientists and health professionals initiated in this book will be of lasting value.' - Social Action Book Review Supplement

`This may be the first comprehensive document on infant mortality in India... The book is, therefore, of considerable importance since it represents important statistical material as well as the views of a number of experts on the subject.' - The Telegraph

`This book fills a large gap in our knowledge about and understanding of infant mortality in India... many of the general finding and the methodological issues that are discussed apply to infant mortality in developing countries generally.
