Factors influencing the infant mortality rate in Sri Lanka

  • Dallas F. S. Fernando (a1)

Summary

This study examines by multiple regression analysis the factors influencing district variation in infant mortality rate in Sri Lanka in a given year (1971). It shows that 83% of the district variation is explained by differences in the proportion of the population that is Indian Tamil, the proportion of female employees, and the proportion of females aged 15–19 with at least 5 years of education.
