Under-five mortality rate (per 1,000 live births)


Under-five mortality rate (per 1,000 live births)

Under-five mortality rate is the probability that a child will die before reaching age five. The indicator is reported as the number of deaths per 1000 live births. Child mortality includes infant and neonatal deaths and reflects the effectiveness of numerous essential services that children receive during their first years of life through primary health care systems, including but not limited to vaccinations, breastfeeding promotion, and nutrition counselling for mothers. This indicator captures more than 90% of global mortality among children under age 18.
