Child mortality in Iceland 1825-2020

The child mortality rate in Iceland, for children under the age of five, was 412 deaths per thousand births in 1825. This means that for every thousand babies born in 1825, over 41 percent did not make it to their fifth birthday. Over the course of the next 195 years, this number has dropped drastically, and the rate has dropped to its lowest point ever in 2020 where it is just two deaths per thousand births, which is the lowest of any country in the world.
