Fatal Injury Mapping Module Unveiled by CDC

The module allows users to create customized, color-coded maps of injury-related death rates throughout the United States. It defines injury-related deaths according to intent (e.g., unintentional, homicide, suicide) and mechanism of injury (e.g., motor-vehicle traffic, fall, fire or burn, poisoning, cut).

CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control has released a new fatal injury mapping model as part of its WISQARS (Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System) database.

The module allows users to create customized, color-coded maps of injury-related death rates throughout the United States. It defines injury-related deaths according to intent (e.g., unintentional, homicide, suicide) and mechanism of injury (e.g., motor-vehicle traffic, fall, fire or burn, poisoning, cut). The module denerates county-level maps using seven years of data, the amount needed to produce reliable county-level injury-related death rates, according to the center's announcement, which said annualized estimates of total lifetime medical and work-loss costs in the module are based on 2005 costs that are provided for counties.

WISQARS is a source for statistics on injuries and injury-related deaths in the United States. It’s an interactive, Web-based query system that provides data on injury-related deaths, violent deaths, and nonfatal injuries.
