Expert Answer:

Infant mortality rate indicates the number of children who die before the age of one, per thousand live children that are born in that year. Infant mortality rate has relation with the life expectancy rate of a child at birth. Life expectancy at birth is the average number of years a new born infant is expected to live if the health and living conditions at the time of his birth remain the same through out his life.
According to various statistics, in countries with high infant mortality rate, life expectancy of a child at his birth is considered as low in first few years of his/her life. However, if a child is able to survive the first five years of his life, it is generally expected that he will live a life depending on the life expectancy rate of that country.
