Number of Deaths

County-level age-adjusted fatal injury rates per 100,000 population are ranked by quartile (low, mid-low, mid-high and high). The Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) percentile ranking values are ranked from 0 to 1 in quartiles as low (0.0-0.2500), mid-low (0.2501-0.5000), mid-high (0.5001-0.7500), and high (0.7501-1.0). Higher SVI ranking values correspond to higher vulnerability. The SVI ranking for a county will differ depending on whether national or state-specific data are selected. For state-specific data, counties are ranked relative to other counties in the state. For national-level data, counties are ranked relative to all counties in the United States (including the District of Columbia).


** indicates unstable value (<20 deaths);
-- indicates suppressed value (<10 deaths in sub-national geographic areas or missing metric);
--* indicates secondary suppression (value suppressed to prevent derivation of suppressed values)

Notes and Data Sources

Detailed fatal injury data are available in WISQARS. Additional information on Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) is also available.

This tool is based on an analytic paper that examined the Social Vulnerability Index and unintentional injury rates in the United States from 2015-2019.
