dc.description.abstract The lack of reliable data for child mortality estimation since 1998 has meant that child mortality rates for South Africa have not been updated for almost ten years now. It is the overall aim of this research to explore the possibility of determining up-to-date estimates of South Africa's infant mortality and under-five mortality rates from the 2007 Community Survey data and to use these results to describe the trend in child mortality rates since 1996. en_ZA
