Therefore, the life expectancy between these 5 countries and America, minus Russia is appox. 1-3 yrs. Not a HUGE difference, but a difference none-the-less.
We have the HIGHEST birth rates of all 6 countries and aside Canada, we have the LOWEST death rates.
Our infant mortality rate is the highest aside Russia, however we also have the most diverse ethnic population where blacks and hispanics (making up almost 28% of our entire population) are documented with having the highest infant mortality rates in comparison to their population. No other country mentioned with respect to the most industrialized countries when comparing health care have even half of this particular diverse population. This is not a racist remark, this is scientific and statistcal data so please do not comment that this is racial as you are way off!
Infant mortality is not just based on infant deaths due to health issues, it is also based on other factors:
**They are based on infants that die under 1 year-of-age
**Illness, SIDS, accidental deaths, car wrecks, abuse and neglect are all considered INFANT MORTALITY
**The United States counts all births as live if they show any sign of life, regardless of prematurity or size. This includes what many other countries report as stillbirths. In Austria and Germany, fetal weight must be at least 500 grams (1 pound) to count as a live birth; in other parts of Europe, such as Switzerland, the fetus must be at least 30 centimeters (12 inches) long. In Belgium and France, births at less than 26 weeks of pregnancy are registered as lifeless. And some countries don’t reliably register babies who die within the first 24 hours of birth. Thus, the United States is sure to report higher infant mortality rates. For this very reason, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which collects the European numbers, warns of head-to-head comparisons by country.”
