Resumen

ROJAS-CABRERA, Eleonora Soledad. Adolescent mortality from violent causes and Unsatisfied Basic Needs. Argentina, 2006-2008 and 2012-2014 triennia. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2021, vol.19, n.1, pp.64-73. ISSN 1812-9528.  https://doi.org/10.18004/mem.iics/1812-9528/2021.019.01.64.

Given the increase in violence in the world, its implications for the young population and the scarcity of studies related to this subject according to socioeconomic sector, the objective of this paper was to analyze adolescent mortality from violent causes by level of Unsatisfied Basic Needs (UBN) in Argentina, between triennia 2006-2008 and 2012-2014. For this purpose, a quantitative and descriptive study was carried out, using a socio-demographic approach, based on official statistical information. Mortality rates were calculated for the population aged 10 to 19, disaggregated by level of UBN, sex, age and group of violent causes. The results showed an increase in mortality considering all violent causes regardless of the level of UBN, mostly in males aged 15 to 19 years. In particular, mortality from transport accidents and events of undetermined intention (all levels of UBN), other accidents and suicides (higher levels of UBN) and homicides (lower levels of UBN) increased. Therefore, “tailored-made” actions must be taken to reduce mortality in all cases.
