1. aNumbers in cells represent the number of neonatal deaths in that category divided by the total number for which data was available. Neonatal mortality rate (deaths/1000 live births) is in parentheses. bRelative Risks (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) are adjusted for cluster using GEE modeling.
