Impact Of Couple Protection Rate On Birth Rate : A Stochastic Linear Regression Model
A.S Singh, R.N Mishra, S.C Mohapatra, S.D Bhardwaj
April-June 1992, 17(2):55-57
Couple Protection Rate is one of the proximate determinants of fertility : Since fertility is affected by a number of socio-cultural and biological factors, an increase in contraceptives acceptance need not necessarily be associated with a decline in fertility. In this paper a stochastic linear regression model is fitted on the year wise (1971- 1985) data of Crude Birth Rate (C.B.R) and Couple Protection Rate (C.P.R) of India. C.B.R. was negatively correlated with sterilization as well as IUD and conventional Contraception (CC). The stochasticity of the model would also be influenced by factors like education and socio- economic condition etc.

Health personnel of the Primary Health Center (PHC), Rural Health Training Center (RHTC) and voluntary Health Agency (VHA) were trained to detect sore throats in children in the age group 5 to 15 years. The average number of sore throat cases detected per effective worker month was 12.3 and 8.3 for PHC and RHTC respectively. Injection Benzathine Penicillin was provided as sledgehammer approach compliance ranged from 97.1% to 100%.

Housing Score : Its Correlation With Morbidity Profile
R.K Bansal, D.M Saxena, V Sharma
April-June 1992, 17(2):69-73
Various studies have focused attention on the relationship between housing and health and have established residential environment as an important determinant of the health status of its residents. However, there is a paucity of research work on the development and assessment of comprehensive and quantifiable housing scores and their correlation with the general morbidity profile of residents. Such mathematical housing assessment scores may provide a valuable foresight to city and health planners. In the present study, 2,536 individuals from 542 families, residing in 5 different types of houses were analysed. The residential environment was quantified by using a scoring system developed by Desai and the families were grouped into 3 categories accordingly. A complete health check up of all residents was undertaken to ascertain their disease profile. It was observed that high housing scores were significantly associated with an increase in non- communicable diseases and diseases of the nervous and respiratory systems, while low scores had a high prevalence of communicable, infectious and parasitic diseases. The findings were validated by a repeat assessment using individual parameters separately.
