    Este trabajo analiza las dificultades metodológicas que se presentan al tratar de obtener valores precisos de mortalidad infantil en países que poseen sistemas de registro civil incompletos, así como las alternativas para estimar estos indicadores a partir de otras fuentes de datos. Concluye que, aún cuando dichas alternativas brindan buenos estimados agregados, ellas no pueden sustituir a las estimaciones basadas en un sistema completo de registros vitales, en particular para obtener datos precisos a niveles desagregados.
