While it is estimated that one in four adults age 65 and older fall each year, it is difficult to capture this data since many of these falls go unreported.  Fall hospitalization and death data can illustrate the impact of more serious falls on your community, state, and the nation.  There are often limitations to the falls data that are available; however, obtaining accurate and up-to-date statistics can provide support and direction for targeting limited resources and help assess your impact on fall reduction.
