Methodology Notes

Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) State Emergency Department Databases (SEDDs) provide the best available centralized data sources for estimating the percentage of external-cause-of-injury coded ED records from state-based ED data systems. Twenty-seven states now participate in the HCUP SEDDs.
