A Window Into Prevention Report (PDF)
Report Summary (PDF)
The purpose of this preliminary report is to demonstrate the importance of capturing risk factors and circumstances associated with a child’s death beyond what is recorded on a death certificate. Current data reporting through death certificates only track the number of child deaths and causes. Child Death Review (CDR) teams utilize the National Center for Child Death Review Case Reporting System (Case Reporting System) to capture the who, what, when, where, why and how a child’s death occurred. CDR teams use these factors to identify trends and drive prevention efforts in the community.
