Age-Adjusted Death Rate due to Unintentional Injuries
Shows the age-adjusted death rate per 100,000 population due to unintentional injuries. In 2011 in the United States, injuries, including all causes of unintentional and violence-related injuries combined, accounted for 51.3% of all deaths among persons ages 1â€“44 years of ageâ€”that is more deaths than non-communicable diseases and infectious diseases combined. Adjusted to the standard U.S. 2000 population by the direct method. These rates should only be compared with other rates age-adjusted to the same population. Age-adjusted death rates not calculated for jurisdictions or regions with fewer than 20 deaths per category. Counts are for single year time periods only.
