Review Article (دارای رتبه معتبر)

Home accident is among the most common type of trauma, in the second place after traffic acci-dent. We aimed to determine the prevalence and factors affecting the occurrence of home accidents in Iran.


PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, and national Persian databases including SID, MagIran, and Medi-cal Articles Bank were searched for articles published until September 12, 2021. The pooled prevalence and fac-tors affecting the occurrence of home accidents were calculated.


Twenty articles were included in the meta-analysis. The pooled prevalence of home accident was 44% (95%CI: 32% to 56%). The pooled prevalence of foreign object/fall, stab or cut, suffocation, burn, poisoning and were 15% (95%CI: 10% to 20%), 24% (95%CI: 10% to 38%), 1% (95%CI:0.7% to 1.3%), 31% (95%CI:19% to 42.2%), and 6.8% (95%CI:4.2% to 429.4%), respectively.


The prevalence of home accidents in Iran is moderate but higher than in other countries. The find-ings of this review highlight the need for more attention to home accident in children and elderly in the South and Southeast regions of Iran.
