Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To understand the distribution of reported road traffic injuries case in Tianjin from January to December 2013.

METHODS:

The injury data was collected from the disease surveillance system which covered all the areas in Tianjin. All the reported injury cases were at their first medical care seeking in sentinel hospitals from 1 January 2013 to 31 December 2013.

RESULTS:

A total of 26 405 injury cases were reported, including 103 deaths (0.4%), during this period with the incidence of 263.01/100 000. The male to female ratio of the cases was 1.68: 1 and average age of the cases was (40.24 ± 17.58) years. The injuries caused by motor vehicle traffic accident accounted for 74.0% (19 547 cases) and the non-motor vehicle traffic accident caused cases accounted for 26.0% (6 858). The first four areas with higher incidence were Binhai (684.86/100 000) , Dongli (634.03/100 000) , Xiqing (519.83/100 000) and Jinnan (504.12/100 000) districts. The three districts with lower incidence were Heping (44.69/100 000), Nankai (52.36/100 000) and Hedong (64.34/100 000) districts. The mild, moderate and serious cases accounted for 59.7% (15 771 cases), 33.1% (8 747 cases) and 6.8% (1 783 cases) respectively. The differences in incidence among different districts and age groups were statistical significant (P<0.005). The death number in Tanggu district was highest, accounting for (26.21%) of the total, and age specific death number was highest in age group 45-64 years, accounting for 46.60% of the total.

CONCLUSION:

The case number and severity of road traffic accident caused injury varied with area and age group in Tianjin. It is necessary to develop targeted prevention and control measures to reduce the incidence of road traffic accident related injuries.
