    Article - En anglais


    This study investigated age, sex, and race/ethnicity risk patterns for homicide based on 246 children (new-born to 14 years old) who were murdered in the city of Los Angeles 1980 through 1989.

    Rates of homicide are higher for newborn to 4-year-olds than for 5- to 14-year-olds.

    Boys and girls have similar rates of homicide at young ages; among 5- to 14-year-old, however, boys have higher rates.

    Characteristics of the victim, suspect, and event were fairly consistent across victim race/ethnicity.
