CDC Releases Motor Vehicle Crash Deaths Report

A CDC study released today compares motor vehicle crash death rates in the fifty most populous areas of the country with overall national rates.

Read the Report: Motor Vehicle Crash Deaths in U.S. Metropolitan Areas — 2009

Researchers analyzed 2009 data from the National Vital Statistics System and the U.S. Census Bureau and calculated rates for two groups — people of all ages, and young people 15 to 24 years old. They looked at 15-24 year olds separately because motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for this age group.

Some key findings:

The motor vehicle crash death rate for all ages in the 50 MSAs was 8.2 deaths per 100,000 residents, lower than the national rate of 11.1 deaths per 100,000 residents.

The motor vehicle crash death rate for 15-24 year olds in the 50 MSAs was 13.0 deaths per 100,000 residents, lower than the national rate of 17.3 deaths per 100,000 residents.

Motor vehicle crash death rates in the 50 most populous U.S. metropolitan statistical areas varied widely, from 4.4 to 17.8 per 100,000 residents.
