The methodology used to derive the child mortality estimates follow closely that documented in the “green book” (ref.1). The essence of this method is to fit a multi-spline weighted regression Despite substantial progress in reducing child mortality, concerted efforts remain necessary to avoid preventable under-5 deaths in the coming years and to accelerate progress in improving child survival further.

For ease of presentation, this section focuses on the actual measurement of changes in child welfare over time – the causal explanation of such trends is dealt with extensively in section 3.

Death rates continue to decline in many, including all developed, countries. 1 However, in some regions—against an earlier general expectation—life expectancy has declined.
