From 2010 to 2014, Rhode Island had the lowest number of child fatalities from motor vehicle accidents and the fifth-lowest child mortality rate per 100,000 annually compared to other states. In a study conducted by Harvard University and University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center researchers, traffic fatalities by state for children under 15 were examined for that period. One of the significant findings of the study was that there was a large disparity in fatalities from region to region and state to state. The South had the largest number of child deaths with 1,550 while the Northeast had the smallest with 189. A total of 2,885 children died over the period.
