Global Subnational Infant Mortality Rates, Version 2
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_PMP_IMR_V2_2.0


Summary
Abstract: The Global Subnational Infant Mortality Rates, Version 2 consist of infant mortality rate (IMR) estimates for 234 countries and territories, 143 of which include subnational units. The data are benchmarked to the year 2015 (Version 1 was benchmarked to the year 2000), and are drawn from national offices, Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS), and other sources from 2006 to 2014. Boundary inputs are derived primarily from the Gridded Population of the World, Version 4 (GPWv4). National and subnational data are mapped to grid cells at a spatial resolution of 30 arc-seconds (~1 km) allowing for easy integration with demographic, environmental, and other spatial data.

Purpose: To provide a global subnational map of infant mortality rate estimates for the year 2015, to be used by a wide user community in interdisciplinary studies of health, poverty, and the environment.
