Black women in 2013 had the highest infant mortality rate in the United States at 11.11 per 1,000 births. This is more than double the rate of white women (5.06). 

Further, the report states that “the disparity in the infant mortality rate between non-Hispanic black and non-Hispanic white women has more than doubled over the past decade.”

Infant mortality rates among Puerto Rican mothers were also high at 5.93 per 1,000 live births.

The CDC’s findings follow a report (pdf) released last year by the Commonwealth Fund which finds that the U.S. healthcare system is the most expensive in the world yet delivers the worse care among 11 industrialized nations.
