Effects of neighbourhood, family, and child behaviour on childhood injury in Canada by Hassan Soubhi( Book )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and French and held by 76 libraries worldwide
Using relevant data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth, this study addresses three groups of questions relating to childhood injury in Canada: Is the relationship between family functioning and childhood injuries mediated or modified by parenting or child behaviour?; Which is more strongly related to childhood injuries, family socioeconomic status or indicators of neighbourhood disadvantage? Do they modify the effect of each other? The interaction of these factors with family functioning, parenting or child behaviour is also examined in order to identify the relevant units for intervention (family, neighbourhood or both); Can the models developed based on the previous steps predict injuries two years later?

The remainder of the paper builds on the research found in the bibliography. Chapter three discusses the process & content issues to be considered when measuring NPC on a large-scale survey such as the NLSCY. This is followed by information on a research framework developed to guide the data, research, & policy strategy for the Branch. The final chapter reviews outstanding methodological issues to be considered when measuring NPC through both the NSLCY & a telephone-based care provider survey. It addresses the recommendations made in a technical paper discussing the importance of & most feasible way of collecting data directly from the child's care provider
