AIDS Mortality and the Mobility of Children in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

Publication Abstract

Ford, Kathleen, and Victoria Hosegood. 2005. "AIDS Mortality and the Mobility of Children in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa." Demography, 42(4): 757-768.

This paper examines the effect of parental death on the mobility of 39,163 children aged 0–17 in rural KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, in 2000 and 2001. Parental mortality from all causes prior to and during follow-up increased the risk of a child moving by nearly two times after we controlled for the age and gender of the child and household characteristics. However, in the follow-up period, child mobility following maternal deaths from AIDS was lower than child mobility following maternal deaths from other causes. Younger children, boys, and children whose mothers or fathers were resident members of the children’s households were also less likely to move.

Country of focus: South Africa.
