Empirical analysis of factors affecting child mortality in Nigeria




This project looks at Empirical analysis of factors affecting child mortality in Nigeria. Under-five mortality is a serious problem in every society. As such it demands close attention. In this study, some socio-economic factors affecting under-five mortality in Nigeria were investigated. The study modeled a multiple regression of the factors such as prevalence of HIV, GDP per capita, fertility rate, people using safely managed drinking water services, literacy rate, adult female and labour force participation rate and the findings indicated that in every year, it is expected that about 208 under five children out of every possible 1000 live births die in Nigeria.  It was found that as adult females acquire more education, the chances of under-five mortality will reduce over time, the more clean drinking water is provided, the lesser the expectation of under-five mortality in Nigeria. It was also found that the more women tend to participate in labour force, the lesser the number of under-five deaths. With p-values0.05, it was discovered that the number of children each woman is expected to have has been a major factor increasing under-five mortality rate. In conclusion it was recommended that the girl-child education should not be overlooked as it contributes immensely to child survival
