MAPS IN THE NEWS:
These maps compare child mortality -- defined as the percentage of children who are born alive but die before their 5th birthday -- across time. In 1800, an estimated one-third to one-half of all children born globally before their 5th birthday. By 2015, child mortality rates are vastly lower and clearly linked to economic development. ourworldindata.org/uploads/2018/10/3-World-Maps-of-Child-Mortality-Rate.png
