Fig. 2

District level comparisons: comparing the fraction of high risk births with infant mortality rates by district. In both panels, district mor- tality rates are plotted on the y-axis. In the left panel the x-axis is the proportion of births from poor families, those in the lowest wealth quintile. In the right panel the x-axis is the fraction of high risk births (20% highest risk births) identified by our model. Our estimates based on the statistical model match more closely the actual mortality rates than using the lowest quintile as a proxy for mortality risk
