At-a-glance – 2015 injury deaths in Canada

Abstract

Injuries continue to be a public health concern in Canada. National injury death data are essential for understanding the magnitude and pattern of injuries. This paper used the Vital Statistics - Death database to examine deaths associated with injuries in 2015. Injuries were ranked against causes of death, and more in-depth analysis of injury categories was conducted by sex and age. Unintentional injuries were the 6th leading causes of death overall, with different ranking by sex. Among unintentional injury deaths, leading causes included falls, poisonings, motor vehicle traffic collisions, and suffocation, which varied by age group.
