"Estimated Costs of Injuries in College and High School Female
with Christopher Champa, July 2019, in progress.
Injury rates in thirteen U.S. women's college sports and four U.S. girls'
high school sports are examined in this paper.
The sports are categorized as high injury ($H$) or low injury ($L$)
in injury rates between the two are examined.
Estimates are presented
of the injury savings that would result if the $H$ sports
were changed to
have injury rates similar to those in the $L$ sports.
The estimated college savings are 13,610 fewer injuries per year and 2,020
fewer healthy years lost-to-injury per year.
The estimated high school savings are 143,900 fewer injuries per year and
24,300 fewer healthy years lost-to-injury per year.
For concussions the savings are 2,750 per year for college and
49,390 per year for high school.
The estimated dollar value (in 2015 dollars) of the total injury savings is
between $122 million and $505 million per year for college and between
$1.3 billion and $4.9 billion per year for high school.
