Project Title: Child mortality differentials in conflict-prone counties in Kenya
The objectives of this thesis were two. The first objective was to estimate child mortality rates in conflict-prone counties. The second objective was to estimate the child mortality differentials in these counties based on the socio-economic factors. The study determined that as the education of the mother increases, the mortality of the children decreases. Single and married mothers experienced low child mortality rates while divorced or separated and widowed mothers experienced high child mortality rates. Mothers from urban areas had low child mortality compared to their rural counterparts.
