Mortality Trends in Pacific Island States
 

Mortality Trends in Pacific Island States

Authors: Christine Linhart, Karen Carter, Richard Taylor, Chalapati Rao, Alan Lopez
Release: August 2014

Summary: Mortality is an essential measure of the health of populations. Examining mortality trends over time allows governments and development partners to better understand key priorities for intervention, whether health investments are having the desired impact, and how the health of the population is changing over time. This report examines mortality trends through measures of infant mortality rate (IMR) ‐ deaths in children aged <1 year per 1000 live births; under five mortality rate (U5MR) ‐ deaths in children aged less than 5 years per 1000 live births; and life expectancy (LE) ‐ average number of years a person could expect to live given the current conditions for males and females. These are important development indicators, both for the health sector and in a broader development context.
