This rate is not identical across the state of Texas and studies have found significant disparities between zip codes for example the 76164 zip code has an infant mortality rate of 12.3 deaths per 1,000 live births while the neighboring 76107 zip code has a rate of 1.8 deaths per 1,000 live births. Additionally Black families in Texas are disproportionately burdened by these rates in 2015 the infant mortality rate for Black babies in Texas was 10.9 deaths per 1,000 births. These disparities can be explained by factors such as socioeconomic status air pollution and access to health care.
