Abstract The 1993 final infant mortality (death before age 1 year) rate for the United States--8.4 infant deaths per 1000 live-born infants--was the lowest rate ever recorded and represented a decrease of 1.8\% from the rate of 8.5 for 1992. Based on provisional data for 1994, the declining trend in infant mortality continued through 1994 (rate: 7.9). This report uses data from birth and death certificates compiled by CDC to characterize infant mortality in 1993 and compares the findings with those for 1992.
