Η βρεφική θνησιμότητα στην Ελλάδα και στην Ευρώπη κατά την τελευταία εικοσαετία
Γεωργιάδου, Σεβαστή Β.
The various views on infant mortality, generally in Greece but also to selected countries of the former Soviet Union, have constituted the initial subject of reference of the present work. After that, and based on the Vital Statistic’s data, an effort has been made to present the evolution of infant mortality at the prefectures of Greek territory during the last two decades. By comparing the calculated Infant Mortality Indexes of the years 1980-82 with those of 2000-02, the estimation of the Infant Mortality change has been made possible for the above period. Finally by using data from the 2001 General Population Census , the statistical analysis of social and economic factors, that are related to the changes of Infantile Deaths Index at the interior of every Greek prefecture, has taken place. We have attempted to detect the social and economic situation that may affect the infantile mortality in order to reach in correct conclusion as far as it concerns the infantile mortality during the last two decades.
