Welcome to WISQARSTM

WISQARS logoWISQARSTM (Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System) is an interactive database system that provides customized reports of injury-related data. Learn more about WISQARSTM >>

 

NOTE TO USERS:  In September, 2012, the Nonfatal Injury Reports module was updated with new national-level population estimates based on recently released bridged-race intercensal estimates of the July 1, 2001-July 1, 2009 and April 1, 2010 resident population of the United States. See U.S. Census Populations With Bridged Race Categories (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/bridged_race.htm). On November 28, 2012, the Fatal Injury Reports and Years of Potential Life Lost (YPLL) were updated with new national and state-level intercensal population estimates, which recently became available. Similarly, on December 17, 2012, Violent Death (NVDRS) Reports was also updated with these new state-level population estimates. Crude and age-adjusted death and YPLL rates computed using these revised population estimates may differ from those based on the previous bridged-race postcensal population estimates for 2001-2009, especially with respect to race and Hispanic origin.

 

Fatal Injury Data

Death certificate data from the National Vital Statistics System — deaths, death rates, and years of potential life lost (a measure of premature death) by specific causes of injury mortality and common causes of death.

Nonfatal Injury Data

Mapping Module

This map shows geospatially smoothed, age-adjusted motor vehicle traffic death rates by county (highest rates are shown in brown). Motor vehicle traffic death rates were generally higher in rural areas in the United States from 2000 to 2006.
