Notes:

Infant Deaths:  Deaths occurring to individuals less than 1 year of age.

Infant Death Rates:  The infant death rate is the number of resident infant deaths divided by total resident live births X 1,000. 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. The true rate lies between the lower and upper bounds of the interval with 95% statistical confidence. If the confidence interval is large for a single year comparison, it is suggested that you use the three year and five year moving average rates.

*:  A rate is not calculated when there are fewer than 6 events, because the width of the confidence interval would negate any usefulness for comparative purposes.

-:  A dash indicates that there were either no births or no infant deaths from this category.
