Health Indicator Report of
MVC Hospitalizations by Age Group and Sex, Utah, 2004-2006
Notes[[br]] [[br]] From 2004-2006, MVC hospitalization rates were higher for males age 5-14 and age 18-54 than for females in the same age groups. Sex differences for the other age groups were not statistically significant. Overall, the 18-19 age group (11.9 hospitalizations per 10,000 population) followed by the 15-17 age group (11.4 hospitalizations per 10,000 population) had the highest MVC hospitalization rates. Children (age 1 to 14) had the lowest overall MVC hospitalization rate (2.2 hospitalizations per 10,000 population), while adults over age 20 had a MVC hospitalization rate of 7.3 per 10,000 population. Conclusions cannot be made regarding the overall MVC hospitalization rate of children under one year of age due to the small number of cases during the data period.
