Child immunisation in Ghana: the effects of family, location and social disparity

Matthews, Z. and Diamond, I. (1997) Child immunisation in Ghana: the effects of family, location and social disparity Journal of Biosocial Science, 29, (3), pp. 327-343. (PMID:9881139).

Record type: Article


The data from the Demographic and Health Survey conducted in Ghana in 1988 are used to identify determinants of immunisation uptake for children under 5 years. The logistic binomial analysis shows that socioeconomic factors are significant, especially women's education and region, and that the type of prenatal care received by the mother is also important. There is a strong familial correlation of vaccination behaviours, and there is also clustering of data within enumeration areas.
