    Trauma has a high rate of recurrence, suggesting that some people are more injury-prone than others.

    This study was performed to evaluate some of the psychological and social factors that might influence the likelihood of traumatic injury.

    Methods

    Results 

    Trauma patients were younger than elective surgery patients (p<0.01) and were more likely to be men (p<0.01).

    Victims of intentional injury had a higher probability of alcohol use (p<0.01) and admitted illicit drug use (p<0.001) than either nonintentional injury victims or elective surgery patients.

    Victims of intentional injury were more likely to be unemployed than those in the other two groups (p<0.02), whereas elective surgery patients were more likely to be retired (p<0.05) or to be disabled (p<0.0001). (...)
