External Causes of Death in Indiana: Race, Age, and Gender Risks

Service: Analytical studies

Research Areas: Criminal Justice, Public Safety

This technical report is the second in a series of reports and issue briefs on external causes of death in Indiana. The first report presented information about external causes of death—accidents, suicides, and homicides— among Hoosiers from 1981-2004, including basic demographic descriptions of the age, gender, and race patterns of those who die from external causes of death. The current report continues this work focusing on race, age, and gender interaction effects among persons dying from external causes of death in Indiana and the United States. The interaction between race, age, and gender is considered for the purpose of identifying demographic groups with elevated risk for these causes of death. Two future reports will focus on child deaths and gun deaths in Indiana.
