4.03 Infant Health (2 of 2)

This page includes data from Wisconsin Department of Health Services on the health of infants. The infant mortality rate is the number of deaths of children under one year of age per 1,000 live births during the year. The percentage of live births with a low birth weight (less than 2,500 grams or 5lbs 8oz) is a leading indicator of poor infant health and infant mortality.

Notes

The infant mortality rates for Calumet County are omitted for 2005 and 2013 because they are both based on fewer than 20 deaths and, as such, they are subject to large random fluctuations.
