Direct estimates: Infant and under-five mortality rates are calculated from the data from a sample survey
that collects birth histories, with a mother being asked for information on the date of birth and, if relevant,
the age at death of every live-born child she has had. However, the collection of such information by
surveys is complex and requires high levels of interviewer quality and training. The surveys are therefore
quite expensive and can only cover small samples.
Indirect estimates: Indirectly, under-five mortality and infant mortality can be calculated by asking each
woman surveyed for very simple information: her age, the total number of children she has borne, and the
number of those children that have died. Indirect estimates adjust the proportions dead by age group of
mother for an estimated exposure distribution in order to arrive at pure measures of under-five mortality
and of reference dates for these measures. The information from the younger women gives under-five
mortality of more recent years whereas the information from the older women gives under-five mortality of
more distant years. The adjustment process assumes certain patterns of fertility and under-five mortality by
age (East, North, South, West model life tables), and results can be quite sensitive to the choices made.
