Infant mortality rate

Updated 3/30/19

Infant mortality reflects the overall status of maternal health, plus healthcare availability to pregnant women and their infants.  The National Kids Count program data are reported for infant deaths <1-year per 1,000 live births (by place of residence, and not place of death) on a 3-year average.

Washoe County continues to be higher than the national Health People 2020 target for less than 6.0 deaths per 1,000 live births.
