Infant mortality is an important indicator of a population’s health and well-being.  The proportion of babies that perish before their first birthday is used as a barometer for maternal health status, quality of and access to medical care, socioeconomic conditions and public health practices.  For this reason, Tarrant County Public Health actively monitors infant mortality among our residents and provides analyses to raise awareness, as well as for use in program and policy development.
