Multilevel log linear model to estimate the risk factors associated with infant mortality in Ethiopia: further analysis of 2016 EDHS

Abstract: Background Infant mortality is defined as the death of a child at any time after birth and before the child’s first birthday. Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest infant and child mortality rate in the world. Infant and child mortality rates are higher in Ethiopia. A study was carried out to estimate the risk factors that affect infant mortality in Ethiopia. Method The EDHS− 2016 data set was used for this study.

“…The odds of infant death among multiple births were higher as compared to singletons. This finding is in agreement with a study from Ethiopia 19 , 20 , 24 showed that the risk of infant deaths due to multiple births is very high. Infants born at the health center were at lower risk than infants born at home.…”
