Biological and Behavioral Influences on the Mortality of Malaysian Infants
This study examines the determinants of infant mortality variations in Peninsular Malaysia. It considers proximate biological correlates of mortality as well as family characteristics and behavior, and inspects the degree to which some of these latter factors have their effects indirectly through more proximate factors. It assesses how these influences and interactions change in importance through successive subperiods of the first year of an infant's life. The analysis is based on data from the 1976-77 Malaysian Family Life Survey.
