          Results Child and adolescent injury mortality was 23.18/10 5, decreasing by year ( t = 7.13, P<0.05). Male mortality (31.59/10 5) was higher than female (14.27/10 5) ( χ 2 = 376.24, P<0.05), the APC of male was -8.82% and -7.48% in female.The injury mortality of male was higher than that of female at all age group. The injury mortality rate of rural children and adolescents (28.65/10 5) was higher than that of urban children (12.37/10 5) ( χ 2 = 297.30, P<0.05), the APC was -8.53% in urban areas and -7.78% in rural areas.The top five causes of injury death of children and adolescents were traffic accident drowning, accidental fall, suicide and accidental mechanical suffocation, accounting for 80.88% of the total injury deaths of children and adolescents.In urban and rural areas, injury death by traffic accident, drowning and rural unintentional falls decreased significantly ( t urban = 3.17, 3.20, t rural = 5.66, 3.12, 4.42, P< 0.05).
