  • Description
    Fetal and Infant Mortality - 5-Year Aggregations by Town reports the 5-year aggregation number and rate of fetal, infant, neonatal, and postneonatal deaths and the 5-year aggregation 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.
