South African mortality data are inadequate for health planning.
Estimates of mortality levels in blacks for 1985, derived using indirect demographic techniques, have provided an opportunity to analyse South African mortality in a health context.
The infant mortality rate (IMR) for the population as a whole was 6411 000 live births in 1985, which is high when compared with those of other countries.
The IMR varied between population groups and was highest in blacks (males 73, females 68) and lowest in whites (males 11, females 7).
