Deaths to children between ages 1 and 14, from all causes, per 100,000 children in this age range.
The data are reported by the place of residence, not the place where the death occurred. Rates are not available for cities. Because population estimates for cities by gender and age are not available, it is not possible to calculate rates and therefore data for cities are limited to just the number of child deaths.
