Abstract
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between socioeconomic

infant and child mortality. Underestimation of macroeconomic factors
on demographic behaviors of different socio-economic characteristics
in previous studies, and regional differentials in infant and child
mortality were the main reasons that motivated me to study this topic.
To overcome deficiency in the literature for Turkey, I have employed
an approach that has the capability to analyze individual level
demographic responses in times of economic stress. More specifically,
combining micro demographic data with macroeconomic data as a time
varying covariate in a life event analysis framework... (More)

an approach that has the capability to analyze individual level
demographic responses in times of economic stress. More specifically,
combining micro demographic data with macroeconomic data as a time
varying covariate in a life event analysis framework has given me the
ability to examine infant and child mortality among different
characteristics. By using this approach, I have gained new perspectives
in examining the possible determinants of infant and child mortality. (Less)
