JAMA on All-Cause Mortality in US Children and Adolescents


JAMA has this Viewpoint piece on all-cause mortality in US youth under age 20.  

Two important to note from the graph above which jump out to me: 

(1) the devastating steep inclines in the death among young males, and 

(2) the small impact COVID mortality had on the young, a fraction of the rate of deaths caused by poisoning in this age cohort.
