The article, "Under-five mortality differentials in urban East Africa: a study of three capital cities" by Gideon Rutaremwa explores the differences in under-five mortality rates in three different East Africa cites: Nairobi, Dar-es Salaam and Kampala. Data was analyzed by a count-data regression model to understand the differences in relevant issues affecting under-five mortality rates.
The results indicate that Nairobi experiences lower mortality rates than the other two cities, and the overall study recommends that living conditions and the affects of these conditions should be examined in future studies.
