Accidents are the cause of many injuries that can reach the point of death. At best, they result in permanent disabilities and disfigurement. They are also the cause of millions of deaths worldwide, as well as burns, drowning, and home injuries. These accidents are often seen as inevitable and occur in all communities and at all ages. However, they have a greater impact on families and communities when they involve young children, especially since they are not responsible for their injuries in most cases. Their injuries are often the result of factors beyond their control.
In this study, we aim to examine this phenomenon in Algerian families based on data from the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey MICS 6, in order to highlight the most important social factors leading to injuries among children aged 5 -17 years, as well as the measures taken by families when injuries occur. We will also address the causes of children's injuries and the relationship between the spread of this phenomenon and social and economic factors.
