          Objective To understand the epidemiologic characteristics of injury among children aged 0-5 years in 2018, and to provide evidence for prevention and control measures of injury in children.

          Methods Data of injury in children aged 0-5 years in China in 2018 were collected from National Injury Surveillance System (NISS) for the descriptive epidemiologic analysis.

          Results A total of 74 355 injury cases were reported in children aged 0-5 years in 2018, with the gender ratio of 0.66, in which 98.13% were unintentional injuries. The top three causes of injury were falls (56.76%), blunt injuries (9.80%) and animal related injuries (7.81%). Injuries mainly occurred during 17: 00—20: 59 (32.09%) and 10: 00—11: 59 (13.95%). The top three places where injuries might occur were home (65.70%), public residence (13.06%), highway/street (10.94%). Recreational activities (64.21%), basic life activities (16.93%) and walking (5.66%) were the main activities when injuries occurred. Of all injury cases, most were mild, while 13.73% of cases were moderate or severe. Head, upper limb and lower limb were main injuries sites, which accounted for 49.44%, 28.59% and 11.70% of all cases respectively.

          Conclusion Injury is an important cause for children aged 0-5 years to go to the outpatient/emergency department for treatment, indicating that the prevention of injury in such age group should be strengthened. It is recommended to further improve the data collection on child injury in order to provide more evidence for child injury intervention.
