Yellow background with MARCH centre logo

In 2021, over 500,000 neonates in India died, accounting for 19% of the global total. Even though neonatal mortality is in decline and now stands at 19.4 per 1,000, it remains well above the SDG target of 12 per 1000. In this seminar, the Jamie Perin introduces a Bayesian multinomial model for estimating cause-specific neonatal mortality trends by state (2000-2021) and discusses heterogeneity in levels and causes.
