Social Inequalities
•Children of parents who have never worked or who are longterm unemployed are 13 times more likely to die from
unintentional injury
•37 times more likely to die as a result of exposure to smoke,
fire or flames than children of parents in higher managerial or
professional occupations
•Children in the 10% most deprived wards are 3 times more
likely to be hit by a car than children in the 10% least deprived
wards
•Fatality is twice as likely in boys as girls (aged between 1 and
14), a gap that increases with age
