Abstract:

This report is a compilation of the maternal mortality data collected in 14 DHS surveys. The objectives of the report are to document DHS procedures for the use of the maternal mortality module, to assess the quality of the sibling history data used to derive the maternal mortality indicators, to provide standardized analyses of these data and to discuss the appropriate use and interpretation of DHS maternal mortality estimates.
