This book aims to describe the state of health of Nordic children today as it appears in research reports and official statistics. It represents a first attempt to collate information about children in these countries, and as such should provide the initial ground-work for researchers and planners, specializing in this aspect of the subject. Divided into fourteen chapters, the book contains information on the economic, social and health systems of the Nordic countries; methods and problems of obtaining and presenting this type of data; demography; frequent and important child health problems such as congenital malformations, accidents, cancer and dental diseases; and conditions that are generally accepted as serious threats to a child's growth and development and at the same time reflect the rapid and significant changes that characterize highly industrialized societies, such as neglect, immigration, child abuse, drug dependency and alcohol dependency.
