Description:

Infant Deaths For Cause of Death = "All Causes. (ICD10 Codes A00-Y99)". The Infant Mortality Rate is the number of deaths of infants under one year of age per 1,000 live births. This measure is perhaps the most important and widely used indicator of mortality among infants. Not only is the infant mortality rate a measure of deaths of infants, it is also an excellent gauge for the overall health of a community, as it is associated with a wide range of social and economic factors. The infant mortality rate is calculated by dividing the number of deaths to infants under the age of 365 days occurring in a year by the number of births occurring in that same year, and multiplying by 1,000. For example, there were 307 infant deaths and 36,982 live births in Arkansas in 2001. The Infant Mortality Rate = (307 / 36,982) X 1,000 = 8.3 infant deaths per 1,000 live births.
