Target 6. Reduce by three quarters, between 1990 and 2015, the maternal mortality ratio
Goal 5. Improve maternal health
269. No national data on maternal mortality available. Estimates derived from model.
271. Data derived from vital registration: countries with good death registration but uncertain attribution of cause of death.
274. Data derived from the Reproductive Age Mortality Study -RAMOS. This method involves identifying and investigating the causes of all deaths of women of reproductive age.
CA - Country Adjusted. The figure is the one produced and provided by the country, but adjusted by the international agency for international comparabilityâ€”that is to comply with internationally agreed standards, definitions and classifications (age group, ISCED, etc)
M - Modeled. The figure is modeled by the agency when there is a complete lack of data on the variable being estimated. The model is based on a set of covariatesâ€”other variables for which data are available and that can explain the phenomenon.
