The map shows the infant mortality rate in the Arctic regions in 2012-2016. The infant mortality rate is the number of deaths per 1 000 live births of children under the age of one year.
Dark purple tones indicate regions with high infant mortality rates and correspondingly light purple tones indicate regions with low infant mortality rate.
In Chukotka (Russian Federation) and Nunavut (Canada) the infant mortality was notably higher than the overall Arctic average: about 20 infant deaths per 1 000 live births. Regions with lowest infant mortality rate were Troms (Norway, 1,8), Iceland (2,0), Lapland (Finland, 2,0), Norrbotten (Sweden, 2,5), and the Yukon (Canada, 2,9).
