USFA Releases Fire Risk Reports

As part of its Topical Fire Report Series, the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) has issued three special reports that examine the risk of death or injury from fire by various demographics, such as age, race, and gender.

The three reports, Fire Risk, Fire Risk to Children, and Fire Risk to Older Adults, were developed by the National Fire Data Center, part of USFA, and explore factors that influence risk and are based on data from the National Center for Health Statistics, National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS), and the U.S. Census Bureau.

These reports are an update of the previous fire risk reports issued in April 2008 (Volume 7, Issues 5, 6, and 7), and are designed to explore facets of the United States fire problem as depicted through data collected in NFIRS. Each topical report briefly addresses the nature of the specific fire or fire-related topic, highlights important findings from the data, and may suggest other resources to consider for further information.
