The 2011 age-adjusted injury-related mortality rate for Wisconsin males was 79.8 deaths per 100,000 male
population. The comparable rate for Wisconsin females in 2011 was 37.7 deaths per 100,000 females. Rates for
females have increased since 1990, while rates for
males have been relatively unchanged.

by about 3% nationally (see Trend Analysis Caution).
