Child mortality in New Zealand 1850-2020

The child mortality rate in New Zealand, for children under the age of five, was 391 deaths per thousand births in 1850. This means that just under forty percent of all children born in 1850 did not make it to their fifth birthday. This number dropped drastically over the next ten years, then it remained between one and two hundred for the remainder of the 1800s, before dropping gradually from 1900 until today. By 2020, child mortality in New Zealand is expected to be approximately five deaths per thousand births.
