Before the Modern Revolution child mortality was very high in all societies that we have knowledge of – a quarter of all children died in the first year of life, almost half died before reaching the end of puberty.

Infant mortality is the death of young children under the age of 1. This death toll is measured by the infant mortality rate (IMR), which is the number of deaths of children under one year of age per 1000 live births

Infant mortality is the death of young children under the age of 1. This death toll is measured by the infant mortality rate (IMR), which is the number of deaths of children under one year of age per 1000 live births. The under-five mortality rate, which is referred to as the child mortality rate, is also an important statistic, considering the infant mortality rate focuses only on children under one year of age.

The infant mortality rate is the number of infant deaths for every 1,000 live births. Maternal and Child Health Epidemiology Program plus icon. In addition to giving us key information about maternal and infant health, the infant mortality rate is an important marker of the overall health of a society. In 2017, the infant mortality rate in the United States was . deaths per 1,000 live births. See Mortality in the United States, 2017). Causes of Infant Mortality. Over 22,000 infants died in the United States in 2017. The five leading causes of infant death in 2017 were: Birth defects.

Slow reduction in infant mortality rate in the last couple of decades is a major concern in India

Slow reduction in infant mortality rate in the last couple of decades is a major concern in India. State-level aggregate data from the National Family Health Survey 1992 and micro-level data on rural mothers (n 317) were used for examining the influence of female literacy on reduction of infant mortality through increased use of maternal and child health (MCH) services. Illiteracy of females was strongly associated with all variables relating to maternal care and also with infant mortality rate.

Child mortality has declined substantially in the past decade. Under-5 mortality in 2015 is estimated at 37 - 40 deaths per 1 000 live births, with an estimated infant mortality rate of 27 - 33 deaths per 1 000 live births

Child mortality has declined substantially in the past decade. Under-5 mortality in 2015 is estimated at 37 - 40 deaths per 1 000 live births, with an estimated infant mortality rate of 27 - 33 deaths per 1 000 live births. Approximately one-third of under-5 deaths occur during the newborn period, while diarrhoea, pneumonia and HIV infection remain the most important causes of death outside of the newborn period.

The infant mortality rate (IMR) has been criticised as a measure of population health because it is narrowly based and likely to focus the attention of health policy on a small part of the population to the exclusion of the rest. More comprehensive measures such as disability adjusted life expectancy (DALE) have come into favour as alternatives.

8Infant mortality came to be recognised as a national social problem and an obstacle to population growth (Newman, 1907; Garrett et a. 2007) in Europe at the end of the 19th century. This concern was also reflected in the introduction of vital statistics specifically devoted to its measurement. 30The relevance of the contribution of medicine and public health to the decline in infant and child mortality has undergone further revision in recent decades (Pozzi, Barona, 2012).

Children continue to face widespread regional and income disparities in their chances of survival. Sub-Saharan Africa continues to be the region with the highest under-five mortality rate in the world-78 deaths per 1,000 live births. In 2018, 1 in 13 children in sub-Saharan Africa died before reaching her or his fifth birthday-15 times higher than the risk for children born in high-income countries.

This series of reports on the normality and health indicators of young African and colored children in South Africa covers demographic, socio-economic and environmental health factors that effect child health at the most basic level. Because so many of these factors transcend the functions of health departments, the findings in these publications should also be considered by role players outside the health field, whose decisions could help to improve the health of young children and reduce the relatively high risk of dying before the age of five. The surveys are based on a number of field surveys conducted in all nine provinces of the country.
