Atlantic Canada Child & Youth Unintentional Injury Hospitalizations: 10 years in review
Available in English and French
This report builds on the previous report from 2005 entitled Child & Youth Unintentional Injury Atlantic Canada: 10 years in review. Data was commissioned from the Canadian Institute for Health Information hospitalization trends (2004-2013) for childhood injury over a 10-year period, the most recent years for which data were available both at the National and Provincial levels. The purpose of this report is to determine the pattern of injuries to children and youth in Atlantic Canada and where possible, whether these injury patterns follow national trends. The data in this report mainly focuses on hospitalizations of children from birth to age 14 (inclusive) and is about unintentional injuries only, including falls.
