  2. Childhood mortality: probability of dying from ages 0–4 years from <5 deaths and population using life table 5q0 (per 1000). Infant mortality rate (IMR): deaths per 1000 live births (1q0); estimated from a regression analysis of international <5 mortality and IMR data from 1990, 2000 and 2010
  3. Adult mortality: probability (%) of dying from ages 15–59 years (45q15)
  4. aBased on children ever-born and children surviving (CEBCS) for <5 mortality with an imputed Far East Asian model life table
  5. bBased on CEBCS for <5 mortality and adult mortality from the parental orphanhood method with and imputed Far East Asian model life table
  6. 95 % confidence intervals (CIs) for reconciled mortality rates from variance of probability of dying (nqx) using Chiang life table method
