The infant mortality rate in Ohio increased in 2015, despite millions of dollars of state, federal and philanthropic funding being poured into programs to address the problem.
The state’s 2015 infant mortality rate, calculated as the number of deaths of a live-born baby before age one per 1,000 live births, is 7.2. That’s about 21 percent higher than the most recently reported national rate and up from 6.8 the year before.
Ohio has consistently fallen near the bottom of state rankings of infant mortality rates, which most health experts consider a basic measure of the well-being of a population.
