In 2017, the Utah Department of Health Violence and Injury Prevention Program (UDOH VIPP) conducted a random digit dial survey among Utah adults aged 18+ to understand the level of awareness and knowledge of TBIs and to collect information regarding households which had one or more individuals who have suffered from a TBI.
Approximately 40 percent of Utahns reported that they were not very knowledgeable about TBIs in 2017. Fortunately, awareness and knowledge of TBIs had an upward trend over recent years. In 2014, only 20.3 percent of Utahns reported being knowledgeable, very knowledgeable, or extremely knowledgeable of TBIs compared to 26.2
percent in 2017.
