Unintentional Injury Death Rates in the US
From the National Center for Health Statistics
- Date: 08/29/2019 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
- Introduction: Discussion on recent reports on injury death rates in rural and urban areas and additional focus on drug overdose death rates
Speakers from the National Center for Health Statistics will discuss two recently published reports: Unintentional Injury Death Rates in Rural and Urban Areas: United States, 1999–2017 and Urban–Rural Differences in Drug Overdose Death Rates, by Sex, Age, and Type of Drugs Involved, 2017. Both reports are based on mortality data from the National Vital Statistics System.
The first report focuses on the most common causes of unintentional injury deaths. The presentation will cover historical trends and patterns by urbanization for unintentional injury deaths overall, with a more detailed look at motor vehicle traffic injuries, drug overdose, and falls.
The second report focuses on urban-rural differences in drug overdose death rates. The presentation will cover historical trends as well as differences by sex, age group and the types of drugs involved.
The webinar is free of charge. Registration is available here.
