- Infant mortality rate (IMR), Multinomial logistic regression, Neonatal mortality rate (NMR), Post-neonatal mortality rate (PNMR).
In this article , an attempt has been taken to focus light on the status of women in Bangladesh and also see its effect on early childhood mortality controlling the effect of other associated determinants. This paper examines the proposition that constraints on women’s status adversely affect the survival of their children. BDHS 2007 data have been used to construct indices of women’s household autonomy and authority , which are then linked to longitudinal data on survival of their neonates.
