Injuries are a leading cause of disability, morbidity and mortality in Europe with more than 95% of all injury related child deaths occurring in low and middle-income countries.
This report aims to establish current injury related health inequalities between different populations across Europe relating to gender and age inequalities using the European Injury Database (IDB), followed by area level social-economic status (SES) analyses using two SES indicators and two case studies containing area level SES analyses.
