Figure 4.1.2: Deaths from unintentional injury by age group
Rates per 100,000 population, by age group, Middlesex-London, 2010 to 2012 annual average
The greatest burden of mortality from unintentional injury was experienced by the population aged 75 and older (267.2 per 100,000). While the rate of death from injuries increases as age increases, the rate was nearly eight times higher in 75+ population compared to the next youngest age group 65-74 years (Figure 4.1.2).
Rates were not significantly different from each other in rural and urban areas (not shown).
Males (42.0 per 100,000) had higher rates of death due to unintentional injury than females (27.0 per 100,000) in Middlesex London but the difference was not statistically significant (not shown).
