Tracking term: This is one of many parameters statisticians use to track the health of different populations. The neonatal mortality rate is just the rate of death (for any reason) among liveborn infants in the first 28 days (after birth).Researchers will use the rate in one country and compare it to that of another to discuss differences in health services.
