Definitions: The number of deaths from all causes per 100,000 children ages 1-14 by region. Regionally, the population of children ages 1-14 is estimated by subtracting births from official estimates of children ages 0-14. The data are reported by child's place of residence, not place of death. This is a 5-year moving average. 

Data Source: Alaska Section of  Health Analytics and Records; Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Research and Analysis Section.

Footnotes: Five years of data were combined to minimize the unreliability of measurement due to the small number of actual events. The reported values are a moving average across five years.
