Among all TBI-related deaths, the rate of incidence per 100,000 males is significantly
higher than the rate for females starting at age 15 years and up, during years 2001-2009.
There is little statistically significant difference within genders and between age groups
until age 75 and older where there is a noted increase in TBI deaths in both females and
males.
