Definition and Source



This is the number of deaths due to all causes of children between the ages of 1-19 years per 100,000 children.
At a state and county level, this variable is a rate per 100,000 children based on a five-year total.  The rate is calculated as 100,000 times the number of child deaths due to all causes divided by the total number of children ages 1-19.

Indicator clarification:  Due to the small number of child deaths on the county level, a small change in the actual number may result in a large percentage change for trend data.
