Abstract

From 1999 to 2016, age-adjusted death rates from unintentional falls among adults aged ≥65 years increased 110% from 29.4 to 61.6 per 100,000. Among men aged ≥65 years, the age-adjusted death rate increased 89% from 38.3 per 100,000 in 1999 to 72.3 in 2016. For women aged ≥65 years, the rate increased 122% from 24.3 per 100,000 in 1999 to 54.0 in 2016. Throughout the period, death rates from unintentional falls were higher for men than women.
