Overall Deaths

The infant mortality rate is the number of infant deaths for every 1,000 live births. In addition to giving us key information about maternal and infant health, the infant mortality rate is also an important marker of the overall health of a society. In 2024 the country with the lowest infant mortality rate was ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ฐ China, Hong Kong SAR with 1.12 infant deaths per 1000 live births. Closely followed by the European country ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ Slovenia with an infant mortality rate of 1.35. The positive trend in global infant mortality rate can broadly be attributed to improvements in hygiene, water quality, and living conditions that reduced the spread of infections. Futhermore, in countires that provide midwife-led continuity of care (MLCC) from professional midwives, women are 16% less likely to lose their baby and 24% less likely to experience pre-term birth.

Historic Global Infant Mortality Rate (1950-2024)

The global infant mortality rate has been on a positive downward trajectory since the 1950's. The number of infants that die for every 1,000 live births have decreased from 143.3869 to today's standard of only 26.2022. According to the latest projections, the infant mortality rate will decrease even further to 9.2862 infant deaths for every 1,000 live births, by the year 2100.

How is Infant Mortality Rate calculated?

The infant mortality rate or IMR for short is the number of children that die under one year of age in a given year, per 1,000 live births. Thus, infant mortality rates are calculated as the number of deaths in the first year of life divided by the number of live births, multiplied by 1000.

Infant Mortality Rate Formula

Infant Mortality Rate = deaths under 1 year / live births * 1000
