Notes:

A transport fatal injury is any fatal injury involving a device designed primarily for, or being used at the time primarily for, conveying persons or goods from one place to another. This category includes accidents involving: aircraft, spacecraft, watercraft, motor vehicle, railway, and other road vehicles (excludes intentional or undetermined deaths).

Zero deaths are shown by a "—".

Rates are per 100,000 population for the specified age and sex group in the geographic area. Adding and subtracting the number shown after the symbol from the rate creates an interval indicating that the true rate lies between the lower and upper bounds with 95% statistical confidence.

"*" indicates the number of cases is too small (5 or less) to calculate a statistically reliable rate.
"**" indicates rate is greater than 0.0 but less than 0.1.
