Rural-Urban Differences in Risk Factors for Motor Vehicle Fatalities
University of Minnesota Rural Health Research Center
This study uses 2017 County Health Rankings data to run stratified regression models to estimate county-level correlates of motor vehicle fatalities (MVFs) by rural and urban location. We found that rural counties have higher rates of MVFs than urban counties (22 vs. 14 per 100,000, p<0.001).
