Data Source: Kansas Department of Health and Environment; US Census Bureau.

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.
