Report The first half of this paper estimates the annual number of head and neck injury victims and the costs of their injuries. It also describes the data sets and methods used and the major limitations of the estimates. The second half discusses how to use injury costs in performing a benefit-cost analysis of an injury prevention measure. It illustrates the methodology with a benefit-cost analysis of bicycle helmets.
