Data Provided By

Definitions: Teen Violent Deaths is the number of deaths (from homicide, suicide, and motor vehicle accidents) of teens 15–19 years of age per 100,000 teens of the same age range. 

Data Source:

Data are from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and are based on Vital Statistics. Population estimates data are from the U.S. Census Bureau. The current rate represents the number of deaths per 100,000 for calendar year 2018. The trend represents the average change in deaths per 100,000 for calendar years 2014–18.

Footnotes: Data represent calendar year. Some Frontier Counties have only a few hundred teenagers, so one teen violent death leads to hundreds per 100,000 teen population. For example the rate of 1,429 deaths per 100,000 teens in Greeley County 2017 was a single death due to motor vehicle accidents. Statewide, the teen violent deaths increased from 68 persons in 2016 to 90 persons in 2017.
