      Local Abstract: [PIP] The demographic transition theory explains that mortality has played a key role in accelerating population growth. According to this theory, rapidly increased population rates were a product of decreased death rates, while birthrates remained relatively high. Under this circumstance, it is important to mention that mortality statistics should be well-documented and studied. Since the Korean government adopted a fertility control program in 1961, much more attention has been given to study on fertility, rather than to the study of mortality. Furthermore, infant mortality is one of the high priority areas in both the demographic and health fields as a component affecting the progression of fertility and in its relation to the major implementation of public health programs. The objectives of the present study are: 1) to investigate an appropriate level of infant mortality in Korea by an application of adjusted measures, 2) to introduce and discuss the refined methods for infant mortality analysis, and 3) to compare the level of infant mortaltiy rates computed by conventional and ajusted measures. Infant mortality rates in the previous studies were almost always computed only by the conventional method which does not provide an accurate measure of the risk of death during the 1st year of life. To take account of mortality schedules by allocating the infant deaths to their calendar years of births and the deaths to the number of births in that calendar year, the adjusted measures were employed. In consideration of the effect of the yearly cohort of births on deaths, 3 different types of infant mortality rates calculated by conventional and adjusted measures are shown. The level of crude infant mortality rates on the whole is slightly higher than the level derived from an adjusted measure. (author's)
