We investigate the influence that the Growth Domestic Product (GDP) has upon the infant mortality rate. Our study comes from research from "World Development Indicators" from the Databank. The results from our regression explain 87.17% of total variation of infant mortality from the variables used. Our findings showed that GDP is negatively correlated with infant mortality. The findings are consistent with previous studies on the determinants of infant mortality rates.
