      Survival analysis is employed in estimating the survival proportions of infants born in the Nandom district, Ghana and the infant mortality count data fitted to four standard loss distributions. The four loss distributions were Poisson, Binomial, Negative Binomial and Geometric distributions. The results showed that, the first twenty-four (24) hours and month after delivery are the most Author: Raymond Nero, F T Oduro, Abonongo John.
