Table 2 Crude (CR) and age-standardised incidence rates (ASR) of unintentional injuries by gender and place of accident

From: Population-based incidences of non-fatal injuries - results of the German-wide telephone survey 2004

  1. N: unweighted number of injuries due to non-fatal accidents; CR: crude rate per 100 person years; ASR: age-standardised rate: weighted age-standardised incidence rate per 100 person years; SE: standard errors of the age-standardised incidence rates calculated using the binomial distribution [12].
  2. Gender ratios: ratios of male to female age-standardised incidence rates.
  3. *Age range restricted to people aged 18–69 years because only 19 people aged 70+ years were still employed.
