What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the mortality rate in deaths per 1,000 live births for infants within their first year of life.
Why this is important: 
Infant mortality rate continues to be one of the most widely used indicators of the overall health status of a community. The leading causes of death among infants are birth defects, pre-term delivery, low birth weight, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and maternal complications during pregnancy.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the infant mortality rate to 6 deaths per 1,000 live births.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 67 Florida counties.
