Statistical Analysis of Risk Factors Associated with Anaemia among Children Under Five Years in Western Ghana
Abstract: This study examined the relation between Anaemia and some risk factors among children under the ages of five years in the Tarkwa Nsuaem municipality, a mining community in Western Ghana. The risk factors considered were Malaria, Diarrhoea and Malnutrition. The examination was achieved by formulating models using the risk factors as the explanatory variables of anaemia through which the contribution of each risk factor to the prevalence of anaemia was identified. Analysis was performed in three phases, thus, on females, males and the overall cases of anaemia cases reported in the Tarkwa Nsuaem municipality. The results from the overall cases indicate that the prevalence of anaemia among children under five years in the municipality is highly attributed to the incidence of malnutrition (10.50), followed by diarrhoea (0.74) and malaria (0.08).
