Title Estimating adult mortality in South Africa using orphanhood and year of death data from the 2008 National Income Dynamics Study
Publication (Day/Month/Year) 2010
The overall objective of this research is to investigate whether using year of death data to produce estimates of time location is a better approach than the method developed by Brass and Bamgboye (1981) and whether estimates of mortality produced using year of death data are any better than those derived using the conventional orphanhood method.
