Traumatic Brain Injuries

TidyTuesday Week 13: Traumatic Brain Injury

This week’s tidytuesday data features data from the CDC as part of the Brain Injury Awareness Month. Together with Cosima Meyer, we compare the severity of brain injuries across four military types (Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force) from 2006 to 2014. Even though most brain injuries appear to mild, the seriousness of long-term consequences should not be underestimated.
