Figure 4.2.1: Deaths from leading causes of unintentional injury by sex
Counts and age-standardized rates per 100,000 population, Middlesex-London, 2010 to 2012 annual average
Falls were the leading cause of death in the Middlesex-London population in 2010 to 2012, with an average annual rate of 16.9 per 100,000. The rate of deaths due to falls was more than double the next most common injury causing deaths, poisonings (6.6 per 100,000). There was no significant difference in the rates of deaths due to falls between males and females.
Land transport collisions was the third leading cause of injury related death in males (9.5 per 100,000) and females (2.6 per 100,000).
Suffocation and drowning represent the other most common injury-related causes of death seen in the population.
