Gallagher, Susan S.; And Others
American Journal of Public Health, v74 n12 p1340-47 Dec 1984
Analysis of data on injuries among 0-19 year-olds showed that injury rates varied considerably by age, sex, and level of severity. Overall, results demonstrated that both morbidity and mortality must be considered when determining prevention priorities and that prevention efforts must be expanded to target injuries of higher incidence among adolescents.
