This indicator reports the number of deaths of infants under 1 year of age and the rate of infant mortality per 1,000 live births.
of Public Health, Vital Statistics, 2009-2014, Table 7
The total numbers of
deaths of infants under 1 year of age were obtained from State Department of
Public Health Vital Statistics tables. Totals include births to Connecticut
residents that occurred out-of-state. The rates of infant mortality per 1,000 births
were calculated by the author, by dividing the total number of births
population by 1,000, and then by dividing the total number infant deaths for
each town by this quotient. Counts of infant deaths of five or fewer—excluding zero—were
suppressed, as were rates derived from suppressed totals. Denominators used for
calculating rates exclude records with missing data.
* = Suppressed count
** = Rate derived from suppressed count
