What is the annual incidence of SCI?

It is estimated that the annual incidence of spinal cord injury (SCI), not including those who die at the scene of the accident, is approximately 40 cases per million population in the U. S., or approximately 11,000 new cases each year.

Since there have not been any overall incidence studies of SCI in the U.S. since the 1970’s it is not known if incidence has changed in recent years.
