A new study from the Philippines makes use of the detailed data on fertility and infant mortality collected in the 1988 National Demographic Survey to add to the understanding of infant and child survival. By comparing their findings with information from Indonesia and Thailand, the researchers have come up with a regional picture of the causal dynamics of child survival in Southeast Asia.
