The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between socioeconomic disadvantage and the incidence of sever childhood injury.
Small-area analysis was used to examine socioeconomic risk factors for pediatric injury resulting in hospitalization or death in Northern Manhattan, New York, NY, during a 9-year period (1983 through 1991).
The average annual incidence of all causes of severe pediatric injury was 72.5 per 10 000 children; the case-fatality rate was 2.6%.
