New York City Child Fatality Report (2010) (ISBN: 9781437936346)
By Laura DiGrande
(Paperback, 35 pages, 2010, $25.00)

In 2006, New York City (NYC) established a multi-disciplinary Child Fatality Review Team to examine unnatural deaths in children ages one through 12 and to identify strategies for prevention. Past reports have described the predominant causes of fatal child injury in NYC including traffic crashes, fire and burns, and unintentional injuries in the home.

This 4th report analyzes individual and neighborhood disparities in fatal childhood injuries. These findings show that fatal injuries occur disproportionately among younger children, boys, black non-Hispanic children, and children in the City’s most impoverished neighborhoods.

This report identifies social, environmental, and regulatory measures that could make NYC an even safer place for children. Illustrations.
