Definitions: The number of deaths among Medicaid-enrolled infants under 1 year, per 1,000 live births enrolled in Medicaid; the number of deaths among infants under 1 year not enrolled in Medicaid, per 1,000 live births not enrolled in Medicaid.  This is a 5-year average. 
Alaska links vital records to Medicaid/CHIP enrollment data records to determine enrollment of the mother, father, or infant at the time of the birth as well as enrollment of the infant at the time death.

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.
