Fatalities per million inhabitants in regions (average 2013-2017).
Variations in mortality per million inhabitants between regions are lower than between counties, with the number of people killed per region being higher than per county, and therefore less subject to statistical hazards or extreme values. The Île-de-France region accounts for 9% of fatalities and 31% of injuries in France mainland for 19% of the population. Mortality per million inhabitants per year varies from 25 for Île-de-France to 97 for Corsica. 4 out of 13 regions have a rate below the national average of 53, all in the northern half. Between the periods 2008-2012 and 2013-2017, mortality as a percentage of population decreased in all regions and seven regions experienced a greater drop in mortality per million inhabitants than the national average (up to -23% for the Centre-Val de Loire). Mortality among 18-24 year olds per million inhabitants in the age group per year is lower than the national average (114) in three regions: Île-de-France (49), Hauts-de-France (101) and Grand Est (110). It is higher than 200 in one region, Corsica (255). Mortality of 65 years old and over per million inhabitants in the age group per year varies from 35 in Île-de-France to 88 in Occitania. 5 out of 13 regions have a rate lower than the national average of 64, all in the northern half.
Accident types in regions.
The share of powered two wheelers in mortality over the 2013-2017 period varies from 16% for the Centre-Val de Loire to 30% for Île-de-France and 35% for Corsica and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. This variation reflects different mobility practices. The regions of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Île-de-France and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur account for 39% of powered two wheelers killed between 2013 and 2017, but they also account for 41% of the powered two wheelers fleet. 2013-2017 shows a number between 6 for Creuse and more than 70 for Bouches-du-Rhône and the counties of the inner suburbs (120 for Seine-Saint-Denis). Taking traffic into account in the calculation of an indicator could make it possible to integrate the wide disparities between highly urbanised and more rural counties, but this data is not available for all types of networks.
