The infant mortality was studied in Osasco, S.P. (Brazil) using the proportional mortality per age, as well as the coefficient of neonatal mortality, infant mortality and specific coefficient of mortality of less than one day old children, children from one to 6 days old and from 7 to 27 days old. With the obtained results it is intended to characterize Osasco in some aspects as a non developed area, where not only the health conditions and infant maternal care but also environment sanitation are getting worse.
