Abstract

Bangladesh experiences high infant and child mortality for many years, for which child injury appears to be one of the most important modes of mortality. We modelled "death due to injury" using a logistic regression to study the differentials of death due to accidental injuries fall, drowning, road accident, burn, poisoning, animal bite, cut according to different socioeconomic characteristics using Bangladesh Health and Injury Survey data. The analysis revealed that children in rural areas got injury and then died very frequently by different accidents, most of the children died from drowning, the death rate of children who were injured was highest at home and mother's education status was also an important factor for child injury and death. The uneducated mothers were not aware of the effect of injuries of their children that caused death. In most cases lack of adequate supervision carelessness turned out to be causes these accidental deaths.
