SANTA FE — New Mexico health officials are worried about an increase in the state’s infant mortality rate.
The state Department of Health announced this week that the death rate among infants one year or younger increased from 5.2 infant deaths per one thousand live births in 2011 to 6.9 in 2012. This marks the first time since 1994 that the state rate has exceeded the national rate, which was 6.0 infant deaths per 1,000 births in 2011.
