Infant mortality refers to the incidence of deaths in infants under 1 year old. Infant mortality is measured by the number of annual deaths of infants less than 1 year per 1, live births.

Instances of infant mortality have decreased dramatically in modern times, particularly beginning in the 20th century. National statistics on the risk ofinfant mortality by birth weight were collected most recently in and (Infant mortality risk is the number ofdeaths of infants under I year ofage per.

In spite of this. Non-Hispanic Black mothers experience the highest infant mortality rate among all racial and ethnic groups ( infant deaths per 1, live births), as well as the highest rates of preterm birth (delivery before 37 weeks of gestation) and low birth weight, both of which are leading causes of infant death.

Mothers who are American Indian or Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander also. Virtually every national and international agency involved in statistical assessments of health status, health care, and economic development uses the infant-mortality rate — the number of.

Infant mortality rates for late preterm infants (34–36 weeks of gestation) were three times those for term infants (37–41 weeks).

The three leading causes of infant death—congenital malformations, low birthweight, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)—accounted for 44 percent all infant deaths. Low birth weight may be correlated with infant health even in the absence of a strong causal effect if both low birth weight and other measures of infant health are determined by a third factor, such as maternal behaviors (e.g., smoking, nutrition, or bed rest) or socioeconomic status (Abrevaya and Dahl,Durrance and Guldi, ).Author: Martin Hugo Saavedra.

Infant mortality is a key measure of a nation's health, reflecting socioeconomic conditions, maternal health, public health practices, and access to high-quality medical care, among other factors (1, 2).Major causes of infant mortality include birth defects, low birthweight and preterm birth, maternal pregnancy complications, and sudden infant death syndrome (3).

This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves. The association between birth weight and infant survival is among the strongest seen in the whole of epidemiology.

Babies weighing less than 1, g have a mortality risk at least fold higher than babies at the optimum weight (the weight associated with the lowest mortality).Cited by:   In this regard, Table 7 shows the conditional distribution of the birthweight of second-borns (birthweight 2) given the birthweight of first-borns (birthweight 1).

On one hand, the frequency of low birthweight second babies given normal weight first babies is equal to %; however, this value rises to % when first babies have low by: 5. Infant mortality by birthweight and other characteristics; United States, birth cohort.

To assess more precisely the effect of maternal child marriage on child mortality, models were constructed for infant mortality (death at mortality (death at years); both infant mortality (ORto ) and child mortality (i, to ) were related to being born to a woman married before age Cited by:   The aim of this study was to clarify the mortality and long‐term outcomes of extremely low‐birthweight infants according to the process of maternal or infant transport and indications for maternal transport.

Material and Methods. We conducted Cited by: 8. In large measure, the association of birthweight distribution and neonatal mortality is due to the birth rate of low-birthweight infants, and particularly very low-birthweight infants.

Birth weight is a strong predictor of neonatal and infant mortality ().Probably for that reason, and because birth-weight data are readily available, investigators have frequently stratified on birth weight when evaluating the effect of other risk factors (e.g., maternal smoking (), multiple pregnancies (), placenta previa (), Black race ()) on infant by: INFANT AND CHILD MORTALITYMortality affects the volume of a population.

Deaths are not equally distributed among all groups; rather many unique patterns have been identified. For example, the probability of dying is high among both extremes of a population's age structure—the very young and the very old.

As a general pattern, the death rate is relatively high at age zero, reaches a minimum. Because other high-income countries define live birth as birth weight of grams or more, the leveling off of mortality rates is more evident in the United States than in many other countries.

“The analysis clearly showed that the leveling off of infant and neonatal mortality is due to the increased proportion of extremely low birth weight. The U.S. Infant Mortality Rate Congressional Research Service Summary The infant mortality rate (IMR)—the number of deaths occurring in the first year of life per 1, live births—is a widely used proxy for the health status of a nation, and is commonly used for international Size: KB.

Low birth weight makes up 60–80% of the infant mortality rate in developing countries. The New England Journal of Medicine stated that "The lowest mortality rates occur among infants weighing 3, to 3, g ( to lb). For infants born weighing 2, g ( lb) or less, the mortality rate rapidly increases with decreasing weight, and most of the infants weighing 1, g ( lb) or.
