    Despite the proliferation of trauma systems, there are no population-based data describing the epidemiology of traumatic death.

    To provide these data, we reviewed all trauma deaths occurring in San Diego (California) County during 1 year.

    There were 625 traumatic deaths during the study (27.3 deaths per 100 000 population per year).

    Motor vehicle trauma was the most common cause of injury leading to death (N=344 (55.2%]; 15.0 annual deaths per 100000 population).

    Central nervous system injuries were the most common cause of death (48.5%, or 13.2 deaths per 100 000 population per year).

    Sepsis was responsible for only 2.5% of the overall mortality.

    Based on life-table data, traumatic death resulted in an annual loss of 1091 years of life per 100 000 and an annual loss of 492 years of productivity per 100.000.
