Injury in the United States:
Children’s Health Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-310), Congress charged
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with “determining
the incidence and prevalence of traumatic brain injury in all age groups
in the general population of the United States.” In response, CDC
has produced a new report, Traumatic Brain Injury in the United States:
Emergency Department Visits, Hospitalizations, and Deaths.
This report is intended as a reference for policy makers, service providers,
educators, researchers, advocates, and others interested in knowing more about
the impact of TBI in the United States.
