Abstract/OtherAbstract:
"Various aspects of mortality in Mongolia are considered in this article, which analyses data from a large-scale demographic survey conducted in late 1994. Because of health improvements introduced into the country following the Second World War, Mongolia experienced a three-fold increase in its population between 1950 and 1990. However, the survey and other data show that the pace of rapid population growth has produced some ill effects. Short birth intervals, high birth orders and mother's young age at the time of giving birth have all increased mortality and morbidity risks."
