This paper presents estimates of infant and child mortality in the rural and urban areas of Iran for 1989. Data are from a one percent sample of the urban and rural population. The study makes use of data on the number of children born alive and children surviving, classified by age of the mother. Based on these data estimates of infant and child mortality for the urban and the rural areas have been calculated separately by using the Trussell version of the Brass method. The results of this study show that the infant mortality rates in the rural and urban areas of Iran are 70 and 35 per thousand, respectively. The estimates obtained from previous retrospective studies are compared with the current rates. Datails of the method, limitations of the data and discussion of the results are given in the paper.
