Infant mortality rate is the number of children that died before the age of one year as a proportion to 1000 children born in that year.

Infant mortality refers to deaths of young children, typically those less than one year of age. It is measured by the infant mortality rate (IMR), which is the number of deaths of children under one year of age per 1000 live births.
