Review of these studies seems to support the conclusion that severe head injury frequently results in persistent problems in attention. Unfortunately, again, the limits of available data are evident. A major drawback to current studies is the difficulty in correlating behavioral data, performance on tests thought to assess attention, and parental or teacher report of problem behaviors which are observed at home or in the classroom. This problem emerges from at least two sources: (1) the disparity between the broad conceptual domain of attention and its narrower definition on such clinical tests as digit span, continuous performance tests, or simple and choice reaction time tasks; and (2) the 2.
However, studies of racial or ethnic differences in the rate of head injuries often fail to calculate the effects of socioeconomic status on the incidence estimates. Kraus (1987) reviewed 10 major incidence studies and observed that the highest brain injury rates were observed in those groups with the lowest median income. , 1990) suggest that for children aged to 15 years, 5% of brain injuries are fatal, 6% are rated as severe, 8% are reported as of moderate severity, and 82% are mild. Finally, it should be noted that the majority of incidence estimates are based upon hospital admission data or upon emergency room visits, which may yield lower incidence estimates for children who have sustained minor brain trauma (Levin, Ewing-Cobbs, & Fletcher, 1989), especially if they are victims of child abuse (Menkes & Batzdorf, 1974; Rutter, Chadwick, & Shaffer, 1984; Shapiro, 1987).
