Indicator code: E060401.F This indicator shares the definition with the parent indicator \"Probability of dying before age 5 per 1000 live births\".
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._
