ABSTRACT
The article highlights findings of study on the rate of unintentional injuries among Canadian children living in urban areas from 1971 to 1998. In the study, Birken and coauthors suggested targeted interventions to narrow the gap in injury-related death rates between rich and poor children. A concerted effort to reduce child poverty in Canada is also emphasized.
