National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) Series

In 1992, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), a unit of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), established an interagency agreement with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)to begin collecting data on nonfatal firearm-related injuries by using the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), the primary data system of CPSC. This ongoing special study is commonly called the "CDC Firearm Injury Surveillance Study". These data provide the basis for national estimates of nonfatal firearm-related injuries and nonfatal BB/pellet gun-related injuries treated in hospital emergency departments in the United States. Beginning in July 2000, NCIPC, in collaboration with CPSC, expanded NEISS to collect data on all types and causes of injuries treated in a representative sample of hospitals. This system is called the "NEISS All Injury Program (NEISS AIP)". These data provide the basis for national estimates of all types of nonfatal injuries treated in hospital emergency departments in the United States.
