Ethnic Differentials in Mortality in Kyrgyzstan (ICPSR 34377) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):


The purpose of this project was to examine mortality by ethnic group in the former Soviet Republic of Kyrgyzstan from 1959 to 1999. A particular focus of this research was infant and child mortality by ethnic group. Using reported monthly probabilities of dying below age two since 1959 and individual census reports of women regarding their number of births and child deaths in 1989 and 1999, improved and independent estimates of infant and child mortality by ethnicity were produced for the period 1959-1999. These estimates permit an assessment of the quality of the reported trends and allow a substantive analysis of the differential effect of the post-Soviet transition period on the child mortality conditions of the various ethnic groups.
