Description
Infant mortality is the death of an infant before his or her first birthday. 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 an important marker of the overall health of a society. Fetal death refers to the spontaneous intrauterine death of a fetus at any time during pregnancy. Fetal deaths later in pregnancy (at 20 weeks of gestation or more, or 28 weeks or more, for example) are also sometimes referred to as stillbirths. Teenage pregnancy includes live births, stillbirths, abortions and ectopic pregnancies of women under the age of twenty.
Rationale
These indicators are used for reporting of Nationally Consistent Data Measures (NCDM). The purpose of these NCDM was to develop standardized data and measures for understanding the impact of our environment on our health and to establish the National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network.
