A partir de todos los nacimientos ocurridos en el Uruguay entre 2002 y 2003 y lasdefunciones ocurridas en el primer año de vida, se estima la tasa de mortalidad infantil através de modelos probit y hazard. Debido a que las muertes se concentran en losprimeros días y semanas de vida, el modelo hazard es preferible al probit, encontrándoseque la estimación probit sobreestima los efectos de las covariables. Los resultadosmuestran que las variables más importantes son la edad y la educación de la madre, loscuidados prenatales y los denominados predictores de la mortalidad (bajo peso al nacer,semanas de gestación y APGAR).
