Global Under 5 Mortality 1970 to 2016

$199 / year

This dataset includes estimates for under-5 mortality rates and 95% uncertainty interval estimates by location and gender, male, female and both sexes combined in 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2016. This age-specific mortality dataset is used to enable health systems to target interventions to the under 5 years of age population.

Complexity

This dataset is from Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (GBD 2016) estimates of age-specific and sex-specific all-cause mortality between 1970 and 2016 for 195 countries and territories and at the subnational level for the five countries with a population greater than 200 million in 2016.

Detailed assessments of mortality patterns, particularly age-specific mortality, in this dataset, the under 5 years of age, are useful in enabling health systems to target interventions to specific population groups.

Globally, mortality rates have decreased across all age groups over the past five decades, with the largest improvements occurring among children younger than 5 years. Under 5 mortality declined globally from 2000 to 2016, decreasing from 69·4 per
1000 live births (67·2–71·8) to 38·4 per 1000 live births (34·5–43·1), giving an average decrease of 3·7% per year (3·0–4·3); of 195 countries and territories, 189 had declines in U5MR since 2000.

Results of the study showed that the number of deaths among children younger than 5 years has declined substantially over the past 47 years, with rates of change accelerating in many countries since 2000, particularly compared with the previous decade, 1990–2000. In 2016, the number of under-5 deaths dropped below 5 million for the first time. This finding is continued evidence that progress is being made in tackling the key causes of child death, which is probably linked to successful strategies and trends, including increased educational levels of mothers, rising incomes per capita,39,40 declining levels of fertility, scale-up of vaccination programme, mass distribution of insecticide-treated bednets, improved water and sanitation, and the impact of a wide array of other health programmes funded by expanded provision of development assistance for health.

The study is published in The Lancet in September 2017 in “Global, regional, and national under-5 mortality, adult mortality, age-specific mortality, and life expectancy, 1970-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016”.
