OBJECTIVE To evaluate the rate of abusive head trauma (AHT) in 3 regions of the United States before and during an economic recession and assess whether there is a relationship between the rate of AHT and county-level unemployment rates. METHODS Clinical data were collected for AHT cases diagnosed in children younger than 5 years from January 1, 2004(More)
