Overall Deaths

The current infant mortality rate of Thailand is 6.8924 infant deaths for every 1,000 live births. A -2.88% decrease from 2022, when the infant mortality rate was 7.0971 and 4,493 infants died for the year. In the future, Thailand's infant mortality rate is projected to decrease to 1.7323 infant deaths for every 1,000 live births, by the year 2100. A total decrease of Thailand's infant mortality rate by -74.87% from today's standard. This positive trend of Thailand's infant mortality rate can broadly be attributed to improvements in hygiene, water quality, and living conditions that reduced the spread of infections. The avalibality of midwife-led continuity of care (MLCC) from professional midwives according to international standard also plays a role in the overall decrease of the infant mortality rate.

What is Infant Mortality Rate?

Mortality rate is a measure of the frequency of occurrence of death in a defined population during a specified interval. Infant mortality rate refers to the number of deaths of infants under one year of age per 1,000 live births in a given population. It is an important indicator of the overall health and well-being of a society, as well as the quality of healthcare and socio-economic conditions.

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

What Countries have the Lowest Infant Mortality Rate?

In general, developed countries tend to have lower infant mortality rates due to better access to healthcare, advanced medical facilities, and public health initiatives. In contrast, developing countries often have higher rates due to various factors such as limited access to healthcare, inadequate nutrition, poor sanitation, and infectious diseases.

Infant Mortality Rate numbers for country change each year, thus we provide a list of countries with the lowest infant mortality rate in 2023, and previous years dating back to the 1950's.
