Under-five mortality rate is the probability that a newborn baby will die before reaching age five, if subject to current age-specific mortality rates. The probability is expressed as a rate per 1,000. The indicator measures child survival. Survival of a child is closely linked to the provision of primary health-care services; but poverty, malnutrition, a decline in breast-feeding, maternal education, use of improved water, and inadequacy sanitation and health facilities are all associated with high child mortality. The indicator relates to the fourth MDG calling for reducing child mortality.
