Small-area Estimation Training Materials

Subnational Estimates of Child Mortality using Complex Survey Data


Over the past several years a group of statisticians and demographers at the University of Washington and The Ohio State University have developed a method to produce subnational estimates of child mortality using complex survey data. Open source code to implement the method is publicly available for the R statistical computing environment as the SUMMER package

 

  • The training materials available on this page provide additional background, instruction, worked examples, and example code.  

 

The production of these training materials was supported by a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to the IUSSP to support innovative demographic methodologies and knowledge sharing for sustainable development.
