To determine the magnitude of the discrepancy in injury death rates between urban and rural counties and which types of injury deaths contribute most to this discrepancy.
A review of Nebraska death certificates over the period 1985-1989 was undertaken.
Counties were divided into four groups according to population.
urban counties (n=3);
group II: counties with a town of greater than 10,000 (n=9);
group III: counties with a total population of greater than 10,000 (n=19);
group IV: counties with a total population of less than 10,000 (n=62).
Age-adjusted death rates for heart disease, cancer, cerebrovascular disease, pneumonia, and injury were tabulated.
