Males Twice as Likely as Females to Die in Motor Vehicle Incidents

A report by the CDC indicates that during 1999-2005, while annual age-adjusted motor vehicle-related death rates overall were nearly unchanged (range: 15.2-15.7 per 100,000 population), substantial differences were observed by state, U.S. Census region, sex, race, and age group. For example, during 1999-2005, the average annual death rate for males in the United States was more than twice the rate for females.
