The death rate from falls increased more than 30% from 18,000 deaths in 2007 to nearly 30,000 in 2016. This new MMWR article describes the trends in fall death rates among adults aged 65 and older from 2007 to 2016 by select demographics and state. If deaths from falls continue to increase at the same rate, the U.S. can expect 59,000 older adults will die because of a fall in 2030.
