Child Deaths Resulting From Inflicted Injuries: Household Risk Factors and Perpetrator Characteristics
Patricia G. Schnitzer, PhD* and Bernard G. Ewigman, MD, MSPH

Objective. To determine the role of household composition as an independent risk factor for fatal inflicted injuries among young children and describe perpetrator characteristics.

Design, Setting, and Population. A population-based, case-control study of all children <5 years of age who died in Missouri between January 1, 1992, and December 31, 1999. Missouri Child Fatality Review Program data were analyzed. Cases all involved children with injuries inflicted by a parent or caregiver. Two age-matched controls per case child were selected randomly from children who died of natural causes.

Main Outcome Measure. Inflicted-injury death. Household composition of case and control children was compared by using multivariate logistic regression. We hypothesized that children residing in households with adults unrelated to them are at higher risk of inflicted-injury death than children residing in households with 2 biological parents.

Social workers warn mothers of live-in risk

CHILDREN HARMED: Child-protection advocates say it's a troubling trend that young children are abused, and even killed, when left in the care of their mothers' boyfriends.

The result: A study published last year found that children living in a household with an unrelated adult are nearly 50 times as likely to die of inflicted injuries as children living with two biological parents -- which the authors called an ``exceptionally high risk.''...

The study found no increased risk of death for children in households with single parents living alone, nor did they face increased risk from stepparents or foster parents.

``Women have to work, and the men aren't working, so they're home watching the kids,'' Schnitzer said. ``If we had a scenario where we had some sort of subsidized child care for these women, maybe they wouldn't have to leave the children home with the men.''
