Atlas of Injury Mortality

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

The Atlas is intended for use as a reference tool for public health professionals and decision makers who are interested in reducing injuries among Native American children and youth. Its format allows one to visually recognize injury patterns across IHS Areas and to compare rates in IHS Areas with national rates. The Atlas is also intended to raise awareness of specific Areas or groups at elevated risk of injury death within the IHS and to help focus the issue of injuries as a public health problem among Native American children and youth. The document includes a map of Pedestrian-Related Deaths per 100,000 Population of Native Americans on page 21.
