The NSW Child Death Review Team (CDRT) works to prevent and reduce the deaths of children aged from birth to 17 years. To do this, we maintain a register of child deaths occurring in NSW and analyse information about these deaths to identify any patterns or trends. One pattern we need to understand is the geographic distribution of child deaths in NSW, and how this may vary by cause of death and the characteristics of geographic areas.

In 2016, we engaged the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare to undertake geospatial analyses of the 8,657 deaths of children that occurred in NSW between 2001 and 2015. This report details the findings of that work.
