Abstract
This analysed maternal and child mortality in Ogun State using age structure of women of childbearing age (15-49 years) by examining their mortality and fertility trend using descriptive statistics. In this study, emphasis is on maternal mortality rate, infant mortality and the fertility rate putting age into consideration and line graph is used to analyze and illustrate the data using the data record department of Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu, Ogun State from 2001 to 2010 as a case study. The result obtained reveal that the maternal mortality rate was high in all the years, but higher in 2010 (7480.32/100,000), 2006 (6437.77/100,000) and 2002 (6352.46/100,000). The number of women in age group 30-34 was higher in all the years compared to other age group (e.g. 147 women in 2001) and the Age Specific Death Rate was lower in this age group (e.g. 20.41), also for all the years compared to most cases. The expected death of mothers was very high in age group 30-34 (e.g. 11 women in 2009) for all the years. Stillbirth Mortality Rate had lower rate than Neo-natal Mortality Rate for all the years (e.g. in 2001 Stillbirth Mortality Rate is 182.74 while Neo-natal Mortality Rate is 261.42). Peri-natal mortality rate, generally was too high (e.g. 444.16 in 2001) and the fertility rate was very high for all the age groups in all the years (e.g. in age group 25-29 in 2004, Age Specific Fertility Rate is 1000.00).
