You’re more likely to die as a baby in Nunavut than as a 70-year-old in the rest of the country

The infant mortality rate was 21.40/1,000 live births in 2012. Compare that to Greenland in 2014:

Infant mortality rate: 9.42 deaths/1,000 live births
male: 10.76 deaths/1,000 live births
female: 8.02 deaths/1,000 live births

Greenland's rate is too high but is considerably less than half that of Nunavut.
