Notes: 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.

*:  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.
