Published By: MSE on eSS | Published Date: December , 2017

Like many other developing nations, the age-specific mortality vary across regions and decline at different pace for India. Using a multinomial logit model, this study analyses the predictors for neonatal, post-neonatal, infant and under-five mortality. Mother?s height, age of mother at first birth, dietary pattern of the mother and education of parents are significant predictors for all the age-specific mortality. Equally important are access and usage of appropriate health inputs like tetanus shots, regular consumption of iron tablets and ante-natal visits. [Working Paper No. 167/2017].
