The number of deaths of infants under 1 year of age per 1000 live births in a given year.
Number of babies out of every 1,000 born each year that die before their first birthday.
Number of deaths occurring to infants under 1 year of age, per 1,000 live births.
Proportion of babies born who die in the first year of life. (97)
the number of deaths to infants under the age of one in a given year per thousand live births
the number of infants who die before reaching 1 year of age. It is generally expressed as deaths per 1000 live births. The World Bank notes ‘Age-specific mortality data such as infant and child mortality, along with life expectancy at birth, are probably the best general indicators of a community’s current health status and are often cited as overall measures of a population’s welfare or quality of life’ (WDR 2000: 319).
the number of children who die before the age of one year, per thousand live births (NOT per thousand population). The IMR in Canada is 6 per thousand births, one of the lowest in the world. (In the US, without medicare, the figure is 8). In some third world countries the IMR is over 100, which means that 10% of all babies will die before age 1.
the annual number of deaths of infants under one year of age per 1,000 live births. (TWG on Maternal and Child Mortality, NSCB)
Deaths in the first year of life per 1000 births. According to the U.S. General Accounting Office, 50% of these deaths are due to lifestyle factors, 20% due to environmental factors, 20% due to biological factors, and 10% due to inadequate health care.
A ratio expressing the number of deaths among children under one year of age reported during a given time period divided by the number of births reported during the same time period. The infant mortality rate is usually expressed per 1,000 live births.
the death rate during the first year of life
The number of deaths of infants under 1 year of age from a cohort of 1,000 live births. Denoted 1 q 0 or IMR, it is the probability of dying between birth and exact age 1.
Ratio of deaths under one year of age to the number of live births in the same year.
Number of children dying under one year per 1000 live births.
The number of deaths of infants 1 year old per 1000 live births in a given year (more correctly a ratio).
The number of children under one year old who died in a year. For example 1 per 1 000 means that one child died for every 1000 that were alive.The infant mortality rate in South Africa in 2004 was 62.18. This means that 62 children out of every 1000 children die before their first birthday.
The probability of dying between birth and exactly one year of age times 1,000.
Of every 1,000 infants born, the number that die before reaching their first birthday.
The number of children out of every 1000 born alive that die before they reach the age of one year.
Probability of dying between birth and exactly one year of age expressed per 1,000 live births.
The number of deaths of infants less than 1 year old (obtained from death certificates) per 1,000 live births in a population (obtained from birth certificates).
Number of infant deaths per 1,000 live births.
The probability of dying between birth and the age of one, according to current mortality rates and expressed as a rate per 1,000 live births is called the infant mortality rate. The lower the rate, the greater the likelihood that basic health care is widely available throughout the country. Source: United Nations See also child mortality rate.
