Abstract

This paper investigates over the last two decades across states a can be attributed to achieve the Millennium Development Goals for target reducing the under-5 mortality by two-thirds of Bangladesh. The paper analysis is able to condition upon a number of socio-economic and demographic variables, under-five child mortality determining by the asymmetric effects of female literacy rate, per capita gross national income and millennium development goal as a dummy variable. Using the time-series data, 1991-2012 period, and applying unit root test, cointegration test and by estimating a vector error correction model. The results find a single cointegrating equation showing a long-run stable relationship between the child mortality and the explanatory variables in the model. And also find that achieved Millennium Development Goals has a significant impact on the child mortality in Bangladesh, convergence of the short-run dynamics towards the long-run equilibrium, but sustainable level of child mortality is expected to be an important prerequisite for ensure future generation of Bangladesh.
