  • Description
    Fetal and Infant Mortality - 1-Year Aggregations by Town reports the annual number and rate of fetal, infant, neonatal, and postneonatal deaths and the annual number of fetal and infant deaths by race for each town.
  • Full Description
    Fetal mortality occurs after 20 weeks of gestation and before labor. Infant mortality occurs before the first year of age and is a sum of Neonatal (the first 28 days after birth) and Postneonatal (from 28 days up to 1 year) mortality. Rates are calculated per every 1000 births; rates are not available for disaggregated race/ethnicities. Fetal and infant mortality values are available for given race/ethnicities. Connecticut Department of Public Health collects and reports data annually. CTData.org carries 1-, 3- and 5-Year aggregations.
