Ten years of child deaths - where does NSW go from here?

A new study that examines important information about child deaths from a ten year period was released today by the NSW Child Death Review Team. The Trends in Child Deaths in NSW 1996-2005 report reveals that child deaths overall have declined by 37.99%, equivalent to saving to 8.6 lives per 100,000 children and young people. When the Team looked at age groups it found the greatest change in mortality rates was for infants, with substantial declines in deaths associated with prematurity (18%), sudden unexpected death in infancy (16%) and congenital malformations (33%).

The researchers found that couples with a child with ADHD were almost twice as likely to divorce before their child turned 8 years old. After that age, however, divorce rates were similar in both groups of parents.
