2nd edition -- 1999 Data
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Injury Center, the Council
of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, and the State and Territorial
Injury Prevention Directors’ Association present the second edition of
the State Injury Indicators Report (SIIR) with 1999 data. The SIIR
compiles injury data voluntarily collected by 26 state health
departments. It consolidates data from hospital records, death
certificates, and several national surveillance systems and provides the
rates of various injuries (such as traumatic brain injuries, fire and
burn injuries, and suicide) and related factors (such as using seat
belts and smoke alarms). Findings are also categorized by sex and age.
SIIR findings can help states determine their individual injury
prevention program priorities and identify prevention needs. These
surveillance data can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of
program activities and identify problems needing further investigation.
