Abstract

Socioeconomic inequalities in childhood road traffic injuries (RTIs) have been well documented. However, in is not clear if, and how, these inequalities have changed over recent years. We investigated time trends in socioeconomic inequalities in childhood RTIs between 1988 and 2003 using police data from the North East of England. The British police record a variety of information on each collision involving a vehicle they are aware of, including: the circumstances of the collision, and the drivers, vehicles, and casualties involved. This information is collated as STATS19 returns. Between July 1988 and June 2003 Northumbria Police also recorded the home postcode of all casualties. (First 150 words of letter)
