Abstract

Motor vehicle traffic deaths were selected using the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) underlying cause-of-death codes V02–V04 (.1, .9), V09.2, V12–V14 (.3–.9), V19 (.4–.6), V20–V28 (.3–.9), V29–V79 (.4–.9), V80 (.3–.5), V81.1, V82.1, V83–V86 (.0–.3), V87 (.0–.8), and V89.2. All motor vehicle traffic deaths were unintentional. Decedents included motor vehicle occupants, motorcyclists, pedal cyclists, and pedestrians.

Urban-rural status is classified in accordance with the National Center for Health Statistics 2013 Urban-Rural Classification Scheme.

In 2017, the age-adjusted rate of motor vehicle traffic deaths was higher for residents of rural areas (19.7 per 100,000) than urban areas (10.2). Rates were higher in rural compared with urban areas for both female and male residents, and rates for males were higher than for females in both urban and rural areas. The death rates were 12.6 per 100,000 for female residents of rural areas, 5.6 for female residents of urban areas, 26.9 for male residents of rural areas, and 15.1 for male residents of urban areas.
