Determinants of Infant Mortality by Birth Order in the Family in Jordan:Quantitative Analytical Study

Auther : Muneer Karadsheh

 

 

The present study attempts to investigate the relationship between demographic and socioeconomic variables and the risk of infant mortality in Jordan. This is achieved through studying birth intervals, while considering birth order. The data was taken from the Jordan Population and Family Health Survey 2002 (JPFHS), which was conducted by the Department of General Statistics. The study employs the life table technique and hazard model analysis since they are appropriate. One of the main insights that can be gained from an analysis of birth intervals relates precisely to the untangling of the two components of the family building process quantum and tempo. The findings show that womens level of education, age at marriage, over-use of contraceptives, kinship and marriage patterns, and religion have a significant relationship, with the risk of infant mortality in Jordan.  

Key words: Social variables, Demographic variables, Infant mortality, Birth interval by birth order
