Summary:

Beginning in July 2000, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in collaboration with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) expanded the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) to collect data on all types and causes of injuries treated in a representative sample of United States hospitals with emergency departments (EDs). This system is called the NEISS All Injury Program (NEISS AIP). The NEISS AIP is designed to provide national incidence estimates of all types and external causes of nonfatal injuries and poisonings treated in United States hospital EDs. The scope of reporting goes beyond routine reporting of injuries associated with consumer-related products in CPSC's jurisdiction to include all injuries and poisonings. The data can be used to (1) measure the magnitude and distribution of nonfatal injuries in the United States, (2) monitor unintentional and violence-related nonfatal injuries over time, (3) identify emerging injury problems, (4) identify specific cases for follow-up investigations of particular injury-related problems, and (5) set national priorities. A fundamental principle of this expansion effort is that preliminary surveillance data are made available in a timely manner to a number of different federal agencies with unique and overlapping public health responsibilities and concerns. Also, the final edited data are released annually on a public use data file for use by other public health professionals and researchers. This public use data file provides the initial release of NEISS AIP data on nonfatal injuries collected during July through December 2000. Variables in the dataset include body part affected by injury, diagnosis, case disposition, fire involvement, immediate cause of injury, injury as determined by the CDC, intent of injury, intent with sexual/other assault, locals where injured, precipitating cause of injury, perpetrator to victim relationship in assault, reason for assault, whether injury was sports-related or traffic-related, whether it was a violent injury, and date of injury. Demographic information specifies race, sex, and age of patient.

Scope of Study

Subject Terms:   accidents, medical care, nonfatal injuries, poisoning, product safety, public health, public safety

Geographic Coverage:   United States

Time Period:  

  • 2000-07--2000-12

Date of Collection:  

  • 2000-07--2000-12

Universe:   United States hospitals providing emergency services.

Data Types:   administrative records data

Methodology

Sample:   Data were collected from a national sample of 66 out of 100 NEISS hospitals, which were selected as a stratified probability sample of United States hospitals with at least six beds that provided 24-hour emergency service excluding psychiatric and penal institutions. The sample included five strata of which four represented different levels of hospital size, measured by the number of emergency department visits. The fifth contained the children's hospitals. There were 31 hospitals in the small stratum, 9 hospitals in the medium stratum, 6 hospitals in the large stratum, 15 hospitals in the very large stratum, and 5 hospitals in the children's stratum.
