Overview


Sub-populations and age groups can be considered social determinants of injury due to various social and economic conditions that may place these populations at higher risk of injury.

For instance, falls are the leading cause of injury for seniors, whereas, motor vehicle related-injuries, poisonings, drowning, and burns, are the leading causes of injury for children. Adolescents can have a higher susceptibility to injury due to their higher participation rates in risk-taking behaviors.
