The Indiana infant mortality rate (IMR) has continued to be much higher thanthe U.S. rate and Healthy People 2020 goal for the past decade (2003-2013). TheHealthy People 2020 Goal is to reduce the IMR to 6.0 infant deaths per 1,000 live births.While the U.S. has seen a steady decline in the IMR, Indianas rates continue tofluctuate. Indianas IMR saw a steady decline between 2004 (8.1) and 2008 (6.9);however, in 2009, the IMR increased to 7.8 and has since slowly decreased to 7.1 in2013. Indianas rates, despite small improvements, are still much higher than the U.S.rate in 2013 of 5.96 infant deaths per 1,000 live births (2015 IN Title V NeedsAssessment).In order to understand the underlying reasons, State officials from multiple agenciesincluding the Indiana State Department of Health [ISDH], Family Social ServicesAdministration [FSSA], and Department of Child Services [DCS] worked together toinform policymakers through the analysis of their unique data sets.
