    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    Western Trauma Association. Annual meeting. Snowbird UT (USA), 1993/02/27.


    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.

    Group I:

    • 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.
