The WHO Europe Child and Adolescent Health Database (CAHD) provides a set of statistics based on indicators related to the health and well-being of children and adolescents. The statistics were collated from a variety of databases as a joint effort between WHO program divisions and collaborating centres and partners. The database was constructed for the purpose of supporting the Child and Adolescent Health and Development Strategy (2015), providing the relevant information for monitoring progress on child and adolescent health indicators in the 53 member states of the WHO European Region.
Indicator code: E060401.T
Number of deaths per 1000 live births until 5 years of age. Taken from appropriate cell of life table (as a by-product of life expectancy calculation), i.e. (1-L5 probability to survive by 5)*1000.
Unfortunately, some countries can not ensure complete registration of all death cases and births. Therefore, under-5 mortality rates calculated using incomplete mortality data are lower than they actually are and inter-country comparisons should be treated with caution.
Particularly high levels of mortality under- registration are observed in countries of central Asia and Caucasus, and in some countries of the former Yugoslavia and Albania. See indicator No.1073 060410 which contains different estimates for the same indicator based on other sources and special methods._
under-registration of deaths. They may be inconsistent with some other mortality-related indicators
which have been calculated using reported data on registered deaths.
