Stochastic model of human gestation period for mature and premature live Birth
AbstractThe Gestation period or the Infecundable period of pregnancy measure from the date of conception to the date of termination of pregnancy by live birth is a useful item for the consideration in certain demographic, biological and public health problems. Bartholomew (1973) has analysed some Markov Chain Model. In this paper, the equilibrium state of human gestation period for mature and premature live birth are analysed. The demographic and biological character of mothers are discussed through the data collected from the hospitals.
