Why This Indicator Matters

Worldwide, accidents kill one million children each year and injure or permanently disable many more. In the United States, injury is a leading cause of death for children, accounting for over one third of all deaths among children ages one to four, and over half of deaths among teens ages 15 to 19. As children age, they encounter new environments and challenges that pose new risks to their safety. Teenagers are significantly more likely to die from injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents and firearms than children of younger ages.
