  • Description:
    In the United States (U.S.), traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious public health concern that results in death and disability for thousands of people each year. During 2013, TBIs were diagnosed in nearly 2.8 million of the 26 million injury-related emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and deaths that occurred in the U.S.

    This report describes 2014 national incidence estimates of TBI-related emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and deaths (TBI-EDHDs) by principal mechanism of injury, injury intent, and age as well as describes the trends in TBI incidence by principal mechanism from 2006-2014. TBI morbidity estimates were derived from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project’s (HCUP) Nationwide Emergency Department Sample (NEDS) and National Inpatient Sample (NIS). HCUP is a suite of state-based administrative health care record databases that serves as a resource of encounter-level health care. TBI mortality estimates were derived from the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) which captures data for all deaths registered in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. The 2014 data year was examined because 2014 was the final full-year in which ED visits, hospitalizations, and deaths were collected prior to the International Classification of iseases diagnosis coding change that affected ED visits and hospitalizations.

    This Surveillance Report was prepared by staff from the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Atlanta, Georgia.

    Contributors to this report included: Alexis B. Peterson, PhD, Likang Xu, MD, MS, Jill Daugherty, PhD, Matthew J. Breiding, PhD.
