This chapter presents the lifetime productivity losses due to injuries. Nonfatal productivity are stratified losses into two categories: short-term losses, which represent lost wages and accompanying fringe benefits and household services occurring in the first six months after an injury, and long-term losses, which represent the respective wage and household loss occurring after six months from the time of the injury. For each injury category (i.e., fatal, hospitalized, nonhospitalized), productivity loss categories (i.e., wage plus fringe benefit loss, household service loss) are stratified by the following: age and sex; mechanism of injury (including motor vehicle/other road user, falls, struck by/ against, cut/pierce, fire/burn, poisoning, drowning/submersion, or firearm/ gunshot); body region and severity of injury; and nature of injury (including fracture, dislocation, sprain/strain, internal organ, open wound, amputation, blood vessel, superficial/contusion, crushing, burn, nerve, system-wide, or unspecified).
