''Infant mortality situation in bangladesh in 2007: a district level analysis''
( 2010, Vol. 30 No.1 )
This paper examines the trend and annual rate of reduction from 1998-2007 and correlates causal factors based on different data from Statistical Yearbook of Bangladesh 2008 and Sample Vital Registration System 2007. Seven explanatory variables are considered and log-log specified ordinary least square and simultaneous quantile regression models are employed to investigate and compare the stochastic impacts of these predictors on changing infant mortality.
Keywords: Infant Mortality Rate, Socio-demographic Determinants, Annual Rate of Reduction, Log linear Regression, Simultaneous Quantile Regression.
