2011 Spinal Cord Injury Facts and Figures published by NSCISC

The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) publishes Spinal Cord Injury Facts and Figures at a Glance every year to summarize trends in SCI Model Systems demographics and injury statistics. Data come from the National SCI Database, which was started in 1973 and currently contains longitudinal information on over 27,000 people with traumatic spinal cord injuries. Notable trends from the 2011 report are that the average age at injury and average life expectancy after injury have been increasing, while average length of rehab hospital stay has continued to decline over the years.
