Infant Mortality measures the number of deaths among children less than one year of age per 1,000 live births.
Infant mortality represents the health of the most vulnerable age group (those under 365 days). This measure can help with interpreting the years of potential life lost (YPLL) rate in a county.
County-level data are available at CDC WONDER, and you can stratify by the gender, race, and ethnicity.
