Abstract

This article presents the results of a retrospective analysis of unintentional and intentional injury mortality in México City for the period 1970-1986. The mortality rates and trends were obtained out of 73,197 registered deaths, (according to the 9th revision of the International Disease Classification). Deaths due to the earthquakes of 1985 were not included. The trend of mortality is undefined (r = -0.430). The most important causes of death were: traffic accidents, homicides, and others accidents. Males accounted 77 per cent of the deaths. The most affected age groups were 15-19 and 20-24 years. The potential years of life lost were analyzed. This study provides information for the prevention and control of injuries and for future research in this field.
