Note: Infant deaths by race of infant; live births used in calculating infant death rates are by race of mother. Rates are per 1,000 live births. Adding and subtracting the number shown after the ± symbol from the rate creates a confidence interval indicating that the true rate lies between the lower and upper bounds of this interval with 95 % statistical confidence.

Infant deaths of unknown race are not included in this table.

1Between 2004-2008, multi-racial infants were reported as "other."
