The target population of this study comprised of all literate adults in Ilorin metropolis. 200 respondents participated in this study and they were all selected from the population using simple random sampling technique.

Section A elicited the demographic data. Section B consisted 24 items which was divided into three sections. Each section consisted of eight (8) questions on attribution of infant mortality. Data collected were analyzed using frequency counts, percentages, t-test and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). All hypotheses were tested at 0.05 alpha level of significance.
