Rates of TBI-related Emergency Department Visits by Age Group — United States, 2001–2010

Rates of TBI-related ED visits increased for all age groups from the period of 2001–2002 through 2009–2010. The rates of TBI-related ED visits increased the most for youth four years of age and younger. From 2007–2008 to 2009–2010, the rates of TBI-related ED visits in this group increased by more than 50% from 1374.0 to 2193.8 per 100,000. Children 0 to 4 years of age had the highest rates of any age group, typically with almost twice the rate of those in the next highest age group (15–24 year-olds).
