    Objectives

    This study compared injury deaths between postpartum women and other women aged 15 to 44.

    Methods

    Risk ratios and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were computed for injury fatality rates.

    Results

    Fifty percent (29/58) of postpartum injury deaths were homicides. compared with 26% (427/1648) of injury deaths among nonpregnant, nonpostpartum women.

    For females aged 15 to 19, the homicide rate was 2.6 times higher (95% CI=1.17,5.95) for postpartum females than for other females.

    The motor-vehicle fatality rate was lower for postpartum females than for nonpregnant, non-postpartum females (risk ratio=0.30.

    CI=0,18,0,481.

    Conclusions

    Postpartum females aged 15 to 19 years were at higher risk of homicide.

    Postpartum women were at reduced risk of motor-vehicle fatalities.
