FACTS AND STATS

On average, nine Canadians were admitted to hospital every day for a pedestrian injury in 2004-2005, but the overall number of hospitalizations dropped significantly for such injuries over 10 years, according to a new report from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).

The 2006 National Trauma Registry Injury Hospitalizations Highlights Report provides an overview of patients hospitalized due to trauma in all acute care facilities in Canada for 2004-2005 and includes a special focus on pedestrian injuries. This report shows that hospital admissions for pedestrian injuries decreased from 4,516 to 3,117 between 1994 and 2005, a decline of 31%. Admission rates decreased by at least 30% for all age groups, but children and youth showed the greatest improvement, with a decline of 51% for all those under 20 years of age and a 62% decrease for children under the age of 5.
