Maternal education is positively associated with child survival and its impact was found to be generally more critical in the step from primary to secondary schooling than from the illiterate to literate group. However, once income/wealth was controlled for the impact of maternal education was greatly reduced and became marginal. The result also demonstrated that given the level of maternal education, the relative significance of income on child survival improved as one ascends from the lowest to the highest income/wealth category. The findings have important implications for policy and further research.
