Definitions:
Number of deaths to infants under one year of age per 1,000 live births to women of all races and for the specified race category (i.e., White, Black, Hispanic, and All Other). 








Data Source:
Alabama Department of Public Health, Center for Health Statistics. County Health Profiles (2005-2015).








Footnotes:
Depending on the county and the specific indicator, percentages and rates are sometimes computed using a small number of cases. Since measurement error is potentially higher when the number of events is small and the resulting rates/percentages are not as stable as those based on larger numbers, caution should be exercised in using data based on limited numbers.
