Poverty Mapping Project: Global Subnational Infant Mortality Rates
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_PMP_IMR


Summary
Abstract: The Global Subnational Infant Mortality Rates consists of estimates of infant mortality rates

for the year 2000. The infant mortality rate for a region or country is defined as the number of children who die before their first

birthday for every 1,000 live births. The data products include a shapefile (vector data) of rates, grids (raster data) of rates (per

10,000 live births in order to preserve precision in integer format), births (the rate denominator) and deaths (the rate numerator),

and a tabular dataset of the same and associated data. Over 10,000 national and subnational units are represented in the tabular and

grid datasets, while the shapefile uses approximately 1,000 units in order to protect the intellectual property of source datasets

for Brazil, China, and Mexico. This dataset is produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information

Network (CIESIN).


Purpose: To provide a global subnational map of infant mortality rate estimates that can be used by a

wide user community in interdisciplinary studies of health, poverty and the environment.
