Thème : Estimating maternal mortality from census data
Appel à communication jusqu’au 1er avril 2010
"The last few years have seen an increasing demand for more accurate estimates to mark progress in development. In particular the widely acknowledged lack of progress in MDG 5 - improving maternal health - has highlighted the importance of providing good and accurate estimates of mortality. Census data has been recommended as a possible way forward to estimate maternal mortality in the absence of a complete or near complete vital registration system. The number of countries that have included maternal mortality questions in their decennial census is increasing and more have pledged to include it in the current census round. With the increasing availability of data it is necessary to gather more information on what works and what doesn’t in terms of both data collection and estimation. This is therefore an important time to gather country experiences in order to inform the debate. In light of the ongoing census round and upcoming census-taking, the aim of this special issue is to collect the state of the art knowledge on the topic thus far.
We welcome submissions from any aspects of measurement of maternal mortality from census data. Papers may be empirical analyses, theoretical works, applied research and contributions to methodology in the general field of maternal mortality estimation from census data. Submissions may take the form of original research papers (8000 words max) and shorter technical research notes (4000 words max). The articles will be peer-reviewed.
For any queries please email Dr Tiziana Leone (t.leone chez lse.ac.uk).
