A simple method is described for estimating childhood mortality when mothers are seen at or soon after a birth. The main bias in the method arises from omission of reports from mothers not contacted in the immediate postnatal period. Recent work indicates that the key question on the survival of the preceding born child might be usefully included in household surveys. A comparison between data from Tari, Papua New Guinea on childhood mortality collected as part of a regular community surveillance scheme and the results from asking the supplementary question in clinics indicates that the simpler preceding birth technique appears to give good results quickly and cheaply.
