Ashutosh Pandey | Himanshu Pandey | Kamal Kishore Sahu

Abstract: In demography, child mortality is useful as a sensitive index of a nations health conditions and as guided for the structuring of public health schemes. In the present study, we proposed a displaced Poisson probability model for the number of child death among females for a fixed parity. The model involved several parameters, which is estimated by method of maximum likelihood and fitted to observed survey data [National Family Health Survey-III (NFHS-III). ] to draw important conclusions.

Keywords: Displaced Probability Model, Fixed Parity, Method of Estimation Chi-Square
