Definition and Source



The number of deaths from all causes per 100,000 children ages 1 to 14 by Alaska Public Health Region. Regionally, the population of children ages 1 to 14 is estimated by subtracting births from official estimates of children ages birth to 14. The data are reported by child's place of residence, not place of death. This is a 5-year moving average. 

Data Source

Alaska Section of  Health Analytics and Records; Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Research and Analysis Section.


Five years of data were combined to minimize the unreliability of measurement due to the small number of actual events. The reported values are a moving average across five years.
