UNICEF -- Results of the 1999
Iraq Child and Maternal Mortality Surveys.
The purpose of the 1999 Iraq Child and Maternal Mortality Surveys is to measure the levels and trends of child mortality over the past 20 years, at the country level, by region, and by other key population characteristics; and to establish a baseline for assessing future trends in Maternal Mortality.
There are two surveys: one covering the 15 governorates in the southern part of the country, where about 85% of the Iraqi population live, and one in the northern autonomous governorates of Dohouk, Erbil and Al-Suleimaniyah.
Information on these surveys and on estimates of child mortality for the whole of Iraq are as follows.
