Infant Mortality in Oklahoma
In 2010, Oklahoma ranked 43rd in the U.S. with an infant mortality rate (IMR) of 7.59, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. Oklahoma's IMR has consistently remained above the national rate since 1992. While some improvements have been observed, we still have much work to do. By reducing the IMR to 6.15, the national rate recorded in 2010, about 90 fewer Oklahoma babies would die each year.
