Incidents in the Outdoors: Contributory factors by gender

In this infographic, we examine incidents by gender type reported to the National Incident Dataset and highlight the most frequently reported contributory factors.  

In total, males have been involved in 3699 incidents, and females involved in 5005 incidents since 2018. The factors contributing to incidents are generally similar for males and females, however, the frequency of the contributory factors differ. For example, females have a higher number of incidents associated with mental/physical conditions compared to males, whereas males have a higher frequency of peer group interactions contributing to incidents. These findings support the need for further research and conversations on this important topic.
