Methodology Notes

NEISS does not use ICD codes. However, reporters are given extensive training and report any unintentional injury cases in the emergency department record.

Data by race are not reported because multiple race data are not typically available from the emergency department records.

Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch

In 2013, rates for 2008 and 2009 were revised using intercensal population estimates based on the 2000 and 2010 censuses instead of the postcensal estimates for the denominator. The original baseline was revised from 9,219.3 to 9,233.4. The target was adjusted from 8,297.4 to 8310.1 to reflect the revised baseline using the original target-setting method.
