Dr. Surjya Chutia, Dr. Hemalakshi Gogoi

Abstract :

The level of infant mortality has been described as a crucial test of the status of the health services and social progress of a population group. I t refers to the probability of dying between birth an exactly one year of age expressed per thousand live births. A low infant motility rate is an indication of better health and socio–economic condition of a population. Infant mortality rates are different among the regions, castes, tribes which may be due to the differences in the socio–cultural and healthcare status of the different population groups. So separate study for each tribe is important which it removes prejudice and reveals the truth. The present study is an attempt to examine the extent of infant mortality and relative importance of few selected determinants among the population of an indigenous tribe of Assam –The Deoris.
