Local accidental injury data from ChiMat

The Child and Maternal Health Observatory (ChiMat) has recently published a report for each local authority area which examines accidents as a major health issue for children.

The reports bring together information about:

  • electrical safety
  • smoke alarms
  • fire and rescue service activity
  • road injuries
  • falls and;
  • burns and scalds.

In addition to unintentional injury data, there is information on:

  • domestic and other forms of violence
  • child protection and;
  • children in need.

The injury data is presented in the wider context of local statistics on population, education, deprivation and the environment.

This helps to provide ready access to some of the key information to create a better understanding of unintentional injuries for children in each local area.

The accident prevention reports complement other local data published by ChiMat including Child Health Profiles and Healthy Schools Profiles.
