Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious public health problem in the United States. Each year, traumatic brain injuries contribute to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability. In 2010 2.5 million TBIs occured either as an isolated injury or along with other injuries. A TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The severity of a TBI may range from "mild," i.e., a brief change in mental status or consciousness to "severe," i.e., an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury.
The Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center is the DoD's Office of Responsibility for tracking TBI data in the U.S. military. Our website provides numbers for service members diagnosed with TBI since 2000, listed in total and identified by service and injury severity. The numbers are updated each quarter. DoD TBI Worldwide Numbers since 2000 is 294,172. More than 260,000 veterans from OIF and OEF so far have been diagnosed with TBI. 19% of veterans may have TBI and 7% of veterans have both post-traumatic stress disorder and TBI.
