A major problem in collecting data on the causes of such deaths beyond infancy is that the deaths will be categorised according to the attributed underlying cause, with no note of whether the deaths were sudden or unexpected.

Thus the identified fall in SIDS rates is not related to changes in categorising these deaths. The increased proportions of deaths attributed to infection, metabolic causes and congenital anomalies each reflect a higher estimated rate (per 1,000 live births) for these causes, but neither the proportion nor the absolute rate of deaths attributed to non-accidental and accidental injury shows any change. NATURAL CAUSES OF UNEXPECTED CHILDHOOD DEATHS 31 ‘FULLY EXPLAINED’ NATURAL CAUSES OF UNEXPECTED DEATHS IN INFANCY AND CHILDHOOD As noted above, a wide range of conditions – both those that occur acutely, and those already present but unrecognised – may contribute to or cause unexpected deaths in infancy and childhood.
