The paper focuses on how mortality due to injuries among Norwegian children has varied over time and throughout the country over the last two decades.
The temporal trends are compared to those of the other Nordic countries.
Individual data on date of birth and death, county of residence at death, sex and cause of death were obtained from the Norwegian Death Registry on all children aged 0-14 who died during the time-span 1971-1989.
Denominators were the number of persons alive in the corresponding age, year, sex and county groups.
There has been a decline in fatal injuries from 25 to 9 deaths per 100 000 person-years in, the late 1980's.
