Frequently Asked Questions

What does “infant mortality rate” mean?
The infant mortality rate represents the rate at which babies die each year in a given location. Any baby that is born alive and dies before his or her first birthday is included. Rather than measured as a percentage, it is measured as deaths per 1,000 live births. In 2014, there were 10,947 babies born in Hamilton County, and we lost 96 of them. So, the 2014 infant mortality rate in Hamilton County was 8.8. The infant mortality rate for the United States is 6.05.
