In this paper an attempt is made to depict simply the spatial pattern in Tanzania of one measure of mortality, namely infant mortality, to make an exploratory analysis of the spatial association of this and related environmental conditions, and to discuss certain problems encountered in such investigations. It is, thus, a study in population geography, but more basically it deals with the intra-national variations in a population characteristic about which there is little general knowledge, whose significance is underestimated, and which should be given considerable importance in assessing regional social wellbeing.
