* When authors make use of data they should cite both the data set and the scientific publication, if available. Such a practice gives credit to data set producers and advances principles of transparency and reproducibility. Please visit the data citations page for details. Users who would like to choose to format the citation(s) for this dataset using a myriad of alternate styles can copy the DOI number and paste it into Crosscite's website.

Note: Data for the Global Subnational Infant Mortality Rates, Version 2, with data benchmarked to the year 2015, are now available.
The global data sets are all translated to a common quarter-degree grid. A quarter-degree grid cell is approximately 770 square kilometers (300 square miles) at the equator, and progressively less at higher latitudes.
Infant Mortality Rates
[Deaths : Live Births]
- Shapefile (.shp) - Shapefile of infant mortality rate
- Grid (.adf)
- ¼ degree grid of infant mortality rate
- ¼ degree grid of births [denominator]
- ¼ degree grid of deaths [numerator]
- 2.5 minute grid of infant mortality rate
- 2.5 minute grid of births [denominator]
- 2.5 minute grid of deaths [numerator]
- Data Table - Excel (.xls) and Comma-Separated Value (.csv) tables of infant mortality rate at two resolutions:
- Highest resolution that can be matched spatially (same resolution as shapefile)
- Highest resolution available in tabular format (sometimes higher than could be matched spatially)
Ancillary Grid Data
[Country, population, land area, latitude, longitude, and sequence id number for each quarter-degree grid cell]
