Indiana’s infant mortality rate is declining but remains higher than the national average. Students at Earlham College in Richmond are working on a simulation program aimed at helping health care providers and women improve those numbers.
Indiana’s infant mortality rate of 6.5 per 1,000 births in 2019 was down from 6.8 the year prior. However, that’s still higher from the national average of around 5.6. That puts the Hoosier State 37th in the country.
