Why This Indicator Matters

Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death among children and youth, accounting for nearly 33% of all deaths among children ages one to four, five to nine, and ten to fourteen. High rates of child mortality within communities can suggest underlying issues such as violent neighborhoods or inadequate child supervision.  It can also point to major inequities including lack of access to health care, high exposure to environmental toxins, or unsafe places for youth to play.
