Curriculum for Urban Injury Research and Epidemiology

Here are a couple of papers on pediatric pedestrian injuries in New York City. This early article describes the epidemiology of pedestrian injuries in children and adolescents (ages <20) in an urban setting, and provides analyses of environmental and pedestrian variables. In this followup study, we investigated the hypothesis that relative to cars, light trucks and vans (including sports utility vehicles) are more likely to result in fatal pediatric pedestrian injury.

In the sidebar of this page also where you will find links to code and data for some injury-related research as well as data and code for published articles such as "Pediatric emergency department visits for pedestrian and bicyclist injuries in the US", "Changes in US mass shooting deaths associated with the 1994-2004 federal assault weapons ban", and "The role of alcohol and other drugs on emergency department traumatic injury mortality in the United States"
