Mortality of children aged 1 to 4 years in the countries of the European Community



Mortality of children aged 1 to 4 years in the countries of the European Community



Archives Francaises de Pediatrie 42(Suppl. 1): 645-649



Mortality rates of children aged 1 to 4 years in each country of the European Community were reviewed. Data was drawn from statistics published by the individual countries. Overall, mortality rates were 61 per 100,000 in boys and 51 per 100,000 in girls and are highest in the Republic of Ireland, the FRG and Belgium. Between 1960 and 1980, mortality decreased in all countries and for both sexes; improvement was greatest in the countries where mortality rates were the highest in 1960. Accidents of different types were the main causes of death in each country. Some were related to age group specific behaviour, such as drownings and falls in young children and suffocations in infants. However, most deaths were due to traffic accidents.
