Abstract

Hospital discharge data collected from all acute care hospitals in Maryland were used to examine severity-specific rates of hospitalized head injuries in 1986. Findings indicate that males are at twice the risk of females for hospitalization for head injury; whites and nonwhites are at similar risk. Evidence that the rate of hospitalization for head injury may be increasing underscores the importance of head injury as a major public health problem in Maryland.
