Infant Mortality Reports

Infant Mortality and Birth Surveillance2019 IM Report screenshot(1)

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.

Infant Mortality Reports

Quarterly Infant Mortality Report, 2011 to current year-to-date

 - Geographic area: All of Franklin County, CelebrateOne ZIP codes only, or non-CelebrateOne ZIP codes only

 - Time period: Quarters from 2011 to the most recent one for which data are available

 - Measure: One of five measures can be displayed by year in a graph on the bottom half of the report: infant mortality rate, preterm birth percentage, very preterm birth percentage, low birthweight percentage, or very low birthweight percentage
