    Statistically speaking, how often does a child die in our world?

    E.g how many each second or minute or day etc. Or by the time you have drawn breath.

    Thanks.

    About 6.5 million a year. (Under age 5) you can divide that by however many seconds there are in a year.

    Has this steadily increased over the past decade? Which countries make up the largest portion?

    I think you mean decreased. It's halved since 1990.
