children with families of low educational and economic level, or single parent have a greater risk of dying when you have one to 24 years, according to a new study by a group of researchers from the University of North Carolina, in the united States, and that has been published in the "Maternal and Child Health Journal".

"although overall incidence of dying between the ages of one to 24 years has decreased in the past 40 years, the fact that continue to exist large gaps between families in the most-favoured and less-favoured it is tragic", have said the experts. David B. Braudt, lead author of the work, has highlighted the importance of this finding and the fact that the same day puts of manifesto.

In the research were analyzed during 16 years more than 350,000 children americans to determine if they lived or died during the study period. So, the experts observed that, in comparison with those whose parents were college-educated, those who had parents with a low educational level had a 40% higher risk of premature death.

Save lives

The results showed that children and young people who live with mothers who obtained university degrees, those who lived with mothers who attended but not graduated from college and who did not finish high school or never graduated, respectively, have a risk of death 28%, 37% and 40% higher premature death. Similarly, in comparison with the children whose father earned a bachelor's degree or more education, children living with parents who attended but not graduated from college and those who did not finish high school have a risk 23% and 41% higher of dying young, respectively.

Independent of education, compared with children who lived in families with high incomes, those who lived in families near or below the poverty line had 38% more chances of dying early.

The highest risk of dying young experienced by those living in a single parent family. The results showed that children raised without a father present in the home experience a 40% increased risk of dying between the ages of one to 24 years, while those who did not have a mother present have a risk 48% higher.

"The understanding of the associations between the resources of parents and families, and the risk that her child will die before 25 years of age provides information that can help policy makers and practitioners to develop targeted interventions to improve the mortality rate in children", have been settled by researchers.
