Mortalidad en la niñez enla Argentina: disparidades regionales y sociales frente a la cuarta meta del Milenio

This paper analyses childhood mortality in Argentina. It posits that the gaps between regions and social groups hinder the achievement of the objective agreed in the Millennium Declaration. Administrative data and micro data from two sources are used to illustrate the magnitude of these gaps: the national population and housing census for north-west Argentina, a region with one of the highest rates of mortality in the country, and the living conditions survey (ECV). Mortality indicators are established and the determinants of childhood mortality are explored using answers given by women aged 15-49 years to questions on the number of children they have had and the number of surviving children.
