This study evaluated the effectiveness of a community coalition to prevent severe injuries to children in Central Harlem, New York, NY.
It was hypothesized that injury incidence rates would decline during the intervention (1989 throught 1991) relative to preintervention years (1983 through 1988); that the decline would be greatest for the targeted age group (5 through 16 years) and targeted injury causes (traffic accidents, assaults, firearms, outdoor falls); and that the decline would occur in the intervention community rather than a control community.
