Infant Mortality Reports

Infant Mortality and Birth Surveillance

Infant mortality – or the death of a baby before his/her first birthday – is a critical indicator of community health. In addition to infant deaths, we track preterm births, low birthweight births, causes of infant deaths, and racial disparities in these indicators.
