    Calling all mathematicians

    I'm seriously terrible at math maybe some here can figure this one out. I took a middle number of spinal cord injury people living in USA right now at 300,000. Our current population is 331,000,000.
    So my question is. What is the percentage of SCI per AB's in the in United States.
    Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

    300,000 / 331,000,000 = 0.0090634 = 0.09%

    Corrected. I should not do even basic arithmetic late at night!

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

      Sorry KLD, I have to differ...
      300,000 / 331,000,000 = 0.00090634
      0.0009 * 100 = 0.09%

      So does that mean we are less than 1 per 100 people?

        Yes. Actually less than 1 per 1000 people. It is also estimated that there are about 10,000 new injuries annually in the USA.

            You can get some statistical information from the SCI Model Systems Database here:

            https://www.nscisc.uab.edu/Public_Pages/FAQ

            and here:

            https://www.nscisc.uab.edu/Public/20...%20Version.pdf

            and here:

            https://www.nscisc.uab.edu/Public/Fa...res%202020.pdf

            There is also some statistical information on the Christopher & Dana Reeve Paralysis Foundation webpage.

            Model System Data only follows those who went through a Model Systems SCI rehab center, and also excluded Dept. of Veterans Affairs data, but they extrapolate their data to include estimates of others.
