War and Children's Mortality.
Carlton-Ford, Steve; Houston, Paula; Hamill, Ann
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v7 n4 p401-19 Nov 2000
Examines impact of war on young children's mortality in 137 countries. Finds that years recently at war (1990-5) interact with years previously at war (1946-89) to elevate mortality rates. Religious composition interacts with years recently at war to reduce effect. Controlling for women's literacy and access to safe water eliminates effect for years previously--but not recently--at war. (JPB)
