Abstract:This article examines the levels, trends and differentials in mortality in Malawi in the 1970s and 1980s using published demographic data obtained from the national censuses and demographic surveys. The study indicates that the level of mortality is very high in Malawi; that mortality has declined during the period under review; that there was a reduction in the rate of mortality decline in the seventies; and that there are interesting differences in mortality between rural and urban localities, between regions, between men and women and different age groups. The observed levels, trends and differentials in mortality are, however, consistent with the level of social and economic development in the country. Bibliogr., sum.
