Resumen

SZOT M, Jorge. Infant mortality and socioeconomic indicators in Chile: 1985-1999. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2002, vol.130, n.1, pp.107-112. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872002000100016.

Background: The link between economy and some public health indicators like Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) is widely demonstrated. Aim: To explore the relationship between some economic indicators and infant mortality in Chile between 1985 and 1999. Material and methods: An ecological study, obtaining information from Demographic Annual Reports edited by the National Institute of Statistics, Health Ministry, Planning Ministry and the Central Bank. Results: There is an inverse association between the Gross National Product, per capita and Real Salary Index and a direct relationship between inflation and unemployment rates with an increased infant mortality. Conclusions: The reduction in infant mortality observed in Chile depends more on socio demographic than on economical factors (Rev Méd Chile 2002; 130: 107-12)
