Research Using Linked Data to Understand Motor Vehicle Injury Among Older Adults

Funding Agency:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Motor vehicle crashes are the second leading cause of unintentional injury death for adults aged 65 years and older. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) is soliciting investigator-initiated research that will help determine the utility of linked data for identifying risk factors, protective factors, and outcomes of motor vehicle crashes among older adults. A better knowledge of how motor vehicle crashes affect types of injuries and injury severity can increase the potential public health impact of motor vehicle crash prevention efforts. Effective data linkage models could be integrated into more comprehensive crash risk assessment and management strategies and, when adopted, help to decrease the rates of injuries and deaths among persons involved in motor vehicle crashes.
