Neonatal cause-of-death estimates for the early and late neonatal periods for 194 countries: 2000–2013
TLDR
The neonatal cause-of-death distribution differs between the early and late periods and varies with neonatal mortality rate level, which must be incorporated into policy decisions to reduce neonatal deaths.
Cause-of-death estimates for the early and late neonatal periods for 194 countries from 2000-2013
TLDR
The neonatal cause-of-death distribution differs between the early and late periods, and varies with NMR level and over time, which must be incorporated into policy decisions to reduce neonatal deaths.

Estimating the distribution of causes of death among children age 1-59 months in high-mortality countries with incomplete death certification.
TLDR
From studies reporting as few as two different causes of death, statistical modelling can be used to estimate the causes of child mortality for settings with incomplete vital registration systems.
Predicting the distribution of under-five deaths by cause in countries without adequate vital registration systems.
TLDR
For countries without adequate vital registration, it is possible to estimate the proportional distribution of child deaths by cause by exploiting systematic associations between this distribution and the characteristics of the populations in which it has been studied, controlling for design features of the studies themselves.
Trends in causes of death among children under 5 in Bangladesh, 1993-2004: an exercise applying a standardized computer algorithm to assign causes of death using verbal autopsy data
TLDR
A standardized algorithm to assign causes of death using symptoms collected through the three verbal autopsy studies conducted with the Bangladesh Demographic and Health Surveys remains a promising tool to generate comparable causes of child death using VA data.
4 million neonatal deaths: an analysis of available cause-of-death data and systematic country estimates with a focus on “birth asphyxia”
TLDR
This thesis aims to develop programmatically-relevant, national estimates for neonatal cause-of-death, focusing on “birth asphyxia” to illustrate specific challenges in the available data and for systematic national estimates.
