Abstract or Introduction
The lives of children around the world are threatened many times in the early stages of their existence due to a variety of factors. Currently, many countries around the world still have very high child mortality rates. Child mortality and its causes are factors that directly affect and are affected by the general well-being of the population. The rate is considered a development indicator of the health status of countries around the world and also allows conclusions to be drawn about the quality of life of a given population. Child mortality rates, along with other health indicators, also represent an important value for assessing the development level of countries – it is not only a serious societal problem but also a sensitive indicator of social development. Reducing child mortality and ensuring the survival and improvement of child health is therefore a highly relevant global issue and is included in the sustainable development goals for 2030, among others.
Furthermore, the evaluation of reasons for child mortality is very important for the development of action strategies for improvement – among others in the field of public health. If correlations between different factors influencing mortality rates can be identified, measures to address them can be derived. Therefore, this research study aims to statistically investigate various factors influencing child mortality.
