  1. Fulltext. Trends and differentials in adolescent and young adult mortality in the United States, 1950 through 1993.

    Article - En anglais


    Using data from the National Vital Statistics System and the National Longitudinal Mortality Study, this study examined mortality trends and differentials from 1950 through 1993 among US adolescents and young adults according to sex, race/ethnicity, education, family income, marital status, and cause of death.

    No appreciable reduction in youth mortality has occurred, especially among men.

    Declines in youth mortality from accidents have been nearly offset by increases in death rates from homicide, suicide, and firearm injuries.

    American Indians, Blacks, males, and those with least education and income were at increased risk of both overall and injury-specific youth mortality.
