Data on diarrhea morbidity of children under five years of age, were analysed to study the risk factors influencing diarrhea prevalence. Data of Household Health Survey 1986 were used for the study. The prevalence of diarrhea among 26,139 children aged 0-59 months was 1.9%, the highest rate was among the age group of 12-23 months. Children born to parents without primary education had the highest risk of getting diarrhea (relative risk = RR = 1.46) as compared to those born to parent with higher education. Children belonging to households of low economic status were more likely to have diarrhea (RR=1.55) than those of better economic status. Children living in households without access to clean water (RR=2.21) or latrine (RR=1.54), had higher risk for diarrhea. More specific analysis of risk factors, by age groups based on the possible different cause of diarrhea, would be necessary for further direction of diarrhea disease control.
