Age-adjusted rates allow for more meaningful comparison of the occurrence of injury. Age specific rates are calculated by dividing the numerator by the actual population of the county for the specified year. The age-adjusted rate is calculated using the U.S. 2000 standard population and is found in the total column. Rates are per 100,000 population.

All reports are grouped by age (e.g. 'under 1yr', '1-4yr', '5-9yr') in five year increments.
