212. Injury and Poisoning Episodes and Conditions, by Age and Sex: 1997

[34,383 represents 34,383,000. Covers all medically attended injuries and poisonings occurring during the 3-month period prior to the survey interview. Data were age-adjusted by the direct method to the 2000 projected population. The age groups used to adjust are the same ones used in the age-specific analyses in this report: under 12 years, 12-21 years, 22-44 years, 45-64 years, 65-79 years, and 80 years and over. Age adjustment is used to adjust for differences in the age distribution of populations being compared. Age adjustment is often done when trends are being analyzed or when populations being compared are known to have different age distributions. The NCHS standard for age adjustment was recently changed from the 1940 standard to a 2000 standard. There may be more than one condition per episode. Based on the redesigned National Health Interview Survey, a sample survey of the civilian noninstitutionalized population. Data presented in this table are not comparable with injury data presented in previous editions]
