Child Mortality & Income
Simon Ejdemyr September 2015

While child mortality in general is lower in high-income countries, many low-income countries did a remarkable job of reducing it between 1990 and 2015.

The y-axis gives a country's estimated mortality rate for children under the age of five (number of deaths per 1,000 live births), while the x-axis gives the country's GDP per capita. The size of each dot is proportional to the number of under-five deaths in the country.

This is an adaptation of Mike Bostock's The Wealth & Health of Nations, which in turn was influenced by the presentational tools developed by Hans Rosling with colleagues at Gapminder.
