Methodology Notes

Only injury episodes that occurred 5 weeks or less before the interview are included. Elapsed time in days is based on the variable RPD. Values are imputed if the exact date was not reported. Each 5-week estimate is annualized by multiplying by 10.4 after weighting to reflect the national estimate.

Up to two activities could be selected for the same injury event.

Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch

The original baseline was revised from 45.6 to 46.6 due to a revision of a programming error. The original baseline included one instead of both activities reported for the same injury event. The target was adjusted from 41.0 to 41.9 to reflect the revised baseline using the original target-setting method.
