Find data and statistics on childhood accidents

We know that too many children and young people are killed, disabled or seriously injured in accidents. However, it can often be difficult to know where to find the data and statistics to help you in your work to reduce accidents. 

We have collected together information and links to reliable online sources of data and statistics for childhood accidents. This will help practitioners and policymakers make the case for child accident prevention and provide evidenced arguments for accident programmes in their local area.
