Figure 2: Correlation between maternal mortality rate and number of skilled staff employed. That the number of skilled staff employed has increased remarkably from 89 in 2005 to 140 in 2009 (about 36.4% [51/140] increase). This generally correlates negatively (r =−;0.34, P = 0.56) with decrease in maternal mortality rate from 932/100,000 in 2005 to 604/100,000 in 2009. This negative correlation seems to be weaker for doctors (r =−;0.27, P = 0.67) than nurses (r =−;0.48, P = 0.41) even the results cannot be said to be significant
