# Tables

Tables

### Guidelines:

• Tables should be presented as properly marked-up HTML tables, providing independent access to the data.
• In this case, the caption and the question are included in the description.
• Describing the table itself would be unnecessarily repetitive.

### Description:

A student conducted a probability simulation by rolling a number cube that has each face marked with a number from 1 to 6. The results of his simulation are given in the table below:

   Numbers Showing     Number of Times Rolled 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 6 8 12 1 6

Question: Based on the data shown in the table, what is the probability of rolling a number greater than 3?

### Guidelines:

• While this table is complex with several layers of headings, it can be broken into three separate tables under the headings: Motor vehicle traffic, Firearm suicide and Firearm homicides.
• Providing three separate tables will aid in navigation and comprehension.
• The table includes two reference notations: a hyphen representing Quantity zero and a superscript one indicating that SE stands for standard error. To avoid confusion in the tables below, the superscript one and the hyphen were simply replaced with the words "Quantity zero" and "standard error." This is an example of providing greater clarity as opposed to mimicking the exact visuals of the table.
• If desirable, this complex table may also be replicated exactly through proper HTML coding.

### Description:

Figure 9 is a table titled: Average annual weighted number of deaths and percent distribution of deaths by body region of injury, for motor vehicle traffic accidents, firearm suicides, and firearm homicides: United States 2003-2004.

For better navigation, the table has been separated into three tables.

Motor vehicle traffic

Body region Number of deaths Percent distribution Standard Error (percent)
Total   43,386   100.0   Quantity zero
Head and neck   13,862   32.0   0.3
Torso   7,382   17.0   0.3
Other specified   911   2.1   0.3
Spine, upper back   492   1.1   0.3
Extremities   410   1.0   0.3
Unclassifiable by body region   14,691   33.9   0.3
Unspecified   6,540   15.1   0.3

Firearm suicide

Body region Number of deaths Percent distribution Standard Error (percent)
Total   16,829   100.0   Quantity zero
Head and neck   12,428   73.9   0.3
Torso   2,211   13.1   0.5
Other specified   28   0.2   0.5
Spine, upper back   13   0.1   0.5
Extremities   14   0.1   0.5
Unclassifiable by body region   67   0.4   0.5
Unspecified   2,094   12.4   0.5

Firearm homicide

Body region Number of deaths Percent distribution Standard Error (percent)
Total   11,772   100.0   Quantity zero
Head and neck   3,714   31.5   0.5
Torso   4,005   34.0   0.5
Other specified   397   3.4   0.6
Spine, upper back   33   0.3   0.7
Extremities   363   3.1   0.6
Unclassifiable by body region   2,685   22.8   0.6
Unspecified   972   8.3   0.6

NOTE: See Appendix I, NVSS, Mortality Statistics for description of data sources and Appendix II, Multiple-cause-of-death data and injury diagnoses, for method to calculate annual weighted number of deaths; Standard error. See Tables III and IV for classification codes.
