QuickStat of the WEEK

The figure above is a bar chart showing that during 2012-2013, among persons aged ≥65 years, men had higher age-adjusted death rates than women from all unintentional injuries, (128.3 versus 84.1 deaths per 100,000 population, respectively), and from the five leading causes of unintentional injury death. Death rates due to falls were the highest for both men and women, with the rates for men 1.4 times higher than the rates for women (66.7 versus 48.8). Compared to women, age-adjusted death rates for men were 2.1 times higher for motor vehicle traffic crashes (21.0 versus 9.9).
