Task 1: Infant Mortality R-ates

The U.S. has higher infant mortality rates than other developed nations. In the course project, you will examine many aspects of this issue. Begin your investigation of infant mortality rates in the U.S. by gathering and analyzing statistical data.

  • Gather data about infant mortality rates in various countries. Identify five countries that have the lowest infant mortality rates and five countries that have the highest infant mortality rates.
  • Find out the infant mortality rate in the U.S. and evaluate how the U.S. ranks in comparison to your chosen countries.

Note: Using tables is a helpful approach when presenting numerical data.

  • The study’s hypothesis or objective
  • The study’s methodological approach
  • The study’s pertinent findings and conclusions

Task 4: Analysis

Using the information gathered, write report proposing effective measures to curb infant mortality rates. Consider necessary policy changes using specific evidence from your research as a guide. Note: It may be helpful to review strategies employed by nations with low infant mortality rates.
