Compare by Region: The colored gauge gives a visual representation of how your community is doing in comparison to other communities. The three-colored dial represents the distribution of values from the reporting regions (e.g. counties in the state) ordered from those doing the best to those doing the worst (sometimes lower values are better and in other cases higher values are better). From that distribution, the green represents the top 50th percentile, the yellow represents the 25th to 50th percentile, and the red represents the "worst" quartile.
Compare by Average: This gauge shows how the Orleans Parish value compares with the median or mean value for all counties in the state (or all US counties) when being higher (or lower) is good or bad.
Compare by Average: This gauge shows how the Orleans Parish value compares with the median or mean value for all counties in the state (or all US counties)when being higher (or lower) is not necessarily good or bad
Compare by Time Period: This gauge shows whether the Orleans Parish value is increasing or decreasing over time. A green arrow means the value is improving and a red arrow means the value is getting worse. The = (equal) sign means that there is not a significant increase or decrease since the last measurement. Target: This gauge shows whether or not the Orleans Parish value meets a specific target. The Orleans Parish value is represented by the left bar and the target value by the right bar.

Comparison: 9.20

Infant Mortality Rate

Value8.80 deaths/1,000 population
Measurement Period:2006-2008
Location:Orleans
Categories:Health / Maternal, Fetal & Infant Health Health / Mortality Data
What is this Indicator?
The total number deaths of infants less than one year of age per 1,000 live births, annually.
Why this is important:
Infant mortality rate continues to be one of the most widely used indicators of the overall health status of a community. The leading causes of death among infants are birth defects, pre-term delivery, low birth weight, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and maternal complications during pregnancy.
Technical Note: The distribution is based on 72 neighborhoods in Orleans Parish. Neighborhood level estimates are calculated from three years of vital statistics data (2006-2008) in order to stabilize small values. Births are for those mothers who resided in Orleans Parish. The denominator is all live births in the neighborhood. Limitations of Data: Neighborhood level estimates are less reliable than Parish level due to small numbers. Likewise, rates from neighborhoods with large numbers of people are more accurate than those with small numbers. Nine percent of all births in Orleans parish (2006 to 2008) were not included in the neighborhood level estimates due to incorrect or unreported addresses, necessary for geo-coding to the neighborhood. However, this should not affect percentages if the omitted addresses are similar to those included in terms of demographics, socio-economic status, or other factors affecting birth-related outcomes.
