Since 1990, it has fallen 47 percent. Even though this decline may seem impressive, it is still short of a Millennium Development Goal of a two-thirds reduction.

Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rate of child mortality anywhere in the globe. The average under-five mortality rate stood at 98 deaths per 1,000 live births in 2012 - 16 times higher than high-income nations. Taken together, Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia accounted for 81 percent of global child deaths in 2012.

This chart shows the child mortality rate per 1,000 births by world region from 1960 to 2012.
