Macro International. 2007. Trends in Demographic and Reproductive Health Indicators in Ethiopia: Further Analysis of the 2000 and 2005 Demographic and Health Surveys Data. DHS Trend Reports No. 4. Calverton, Maryland, USA: Macro International.
This report highlights trends in key demographic and health indicators in Ethiopia from data collected in the two demographic and health surveys: the 2000 Ethiopia Demographic and Health Survey (EDHS) and the 2005 EDHS. Specifically, the report discusses changes in demographic and reproductive health outcomes over the last five years, including changes in fertility, knowledge and practice of family planning, maternal and child health, and infant and child morbidity and mortality. In addition, this report also compares Ethiopia with other sub-Saharan African countries that have data from similarly conducted demographic and health surveys.
The primary objective of this report is to provide information needed by planners, policymakers and program administrators to assess the current situation and trends, and to design more effective population and reproductive health programs aimed at achieving more positive
outcomes in the years to come.
