Summary This article focuses on the relationship between childhood injuries and family type. Injury is the leading cause of death among children in Australia. While children in sole-parent families were over-represented among the 17 percent of children who sustained an injury in the Growing Up in Australia study, once socio-economic indicators were taken into account, the increased risk for injury for children in a sole-parent family was no longer apparent. The Draft National Injury Prevention Plan was developed by the Australian Government Department of Health and Aging to aid in efforts for the prevention of child injury.
