Medical Definition of Fetal mortality rate Fetal mortality rate: The ratio of fetal deaths divided by the sum of the births (the live births + the fetal deaths) in that year. In the United States, the fetal mortality rate plummeted from 19.2 per 1,000 births in 1950 to 9.2 per 1,000 births in 1980.
Secondly, how do you calculate fetal mortality rate?
FETAL MORTALITY RATE is the number of resident fetal deaths in a specified geographic area (country, state, county, etc.) divided by the number of resident live births plus fetal deaths for the same geographic area (for a specified time period, usually a calendar year) and multiplied by 1,000.
