# About the case: The case deals with the dependency Child Mortality (CM) with respect to other

factors like Female Literacy Rate (FLFP), Per Capita GNP (PNGP) and Total Fertility Rate (TFR). The data has been taken for 64 countries. Objective: The motive of analyzing the data is to find out the dependency of the Child Mortality with respect to other given variables. That is, either the other factors are affecting the CM or not, and if they are, then to which extent. Whether it is fully dependent on the given factors or there may be some other factors which may be affecting the CM. Process: In SPSS, the CM is categorized as dependent variable and FLR and PNGP are declared as independent variables. Equation: CM=263.864-2.39FLR+ u 1. Taking only FLR as Independent Variable:

a. Dependent Variable: CM

Analysis: Since t value of FLR is -11.209, it means that its significance level is 99%. Also R square is .670, which means that value of dependent variable(CM) is ifluenced 67% by the factor FLR.

a. Dependent Variable: CM

Equation: CM=263.64 2.232FLR -0.006PGNP+ u Analysis: Since t value of FLR is -10.629 and of PNGP is -2.819, it means that its significance level is 99% for FLR and 95% for PNGP. Also R square is .708, which is more than the adjusted R square (.698).It means that value of dependent variable(CM) is influenced 70.8% by the factors FLR and PNGP. This shows that the another variable PNGP is also positively dependent on the CM.
