This first volume in a series of vital and health statistics monographs sponsored by the American Public Health Association presents a statistical discussion of accidental injury and death, and includes a section on homicide. The authors analyze data from the National Center for Health Statistics obtained from mortality records and by survey to identify causes and trends and to suggest possible measures toward control of such accidents as falls, injuries from fires, automobiles, and the misuse of firearms, and injuries to the aged and to children.
