Select chart tabs

Data is as published by Statistics NZ, quarterly for the infant mortality rate, but only annually for the abortion rate (and then with about a year's delay).

The "infant mortality rate" is the rate of death of children under one year of age per 1,000 live births.

The "general abortion rate" is the number of induced abortions per 1,000 mean estimated number of women aged 15–44 years.
