Infant mortality (3-year average)
The data used for this measure come from Center for Health Statistics, Washington State Department of Health (DOH), Infant Death Data.
S: Data estimate has been suppressed. Rates are not shown when the average number of infant deaths over the three consecutive years is fewer than 5.
Data last updated in February 2021 by Washington KIDS COUNT.
"These events are rare in annual terms. When the events are rare (small numbers) data may be affected by random fluctuations in the number of events between successive years. The effect of such random fluctuations on death rates is proportionately larger when the number of events is small. For example, one more infant death has a larger numerical impact on an area with 3 deaths than it does on an area with 300 deaths. Because of these random fluctuations, the rates based on small numbers may not be as reliable as those based on larger numbers in the sense that they may have limited predictive value.”
Department of Health technical notes on measurement issues are available at http://www.doh.wa.gov/Portals/1/Documents/5300/TechnicalNotes.pdf
We combined three years of data to minimize unreliability of measurement due to small numbers. The values reported here refer to rolling averages across three years. For instance, we report the average value across the years 1992, 1993 and 1994.
KIDS COUNT in Washington is an initiative of Children's Alliance, which gathers crucial data on child well-being by race and ethnicity, then turns that information into action on issues like poverty, hunger, health care, and education.Learn More
