Injury deaths in the adolescent population of Finland: a 43-year secular trend analysis between 1971 and 2013

For this study, the authors use a secular trend analysis to explore general and cause-specific injury deaths of Finnish adolescents between 1971 and 2013. Finland's Official Cause-of-Death Statistics (OCDS) provide the data for the study of unintentional and intentional injury death rates among 10- to14-year olds and 14- to 19-year olds. Unintentional death categories include road traffic injuries, water traffic injuries, falls, drownings and poisonings; intentional death categories include suicides and homicides. The study's findings reveal an overall decrease in the incidence of fatal injuries during the 43-year study period, with the most significant change occurring in road traffic injuries and drownings.
