2.5 Geographic/ Base Year Options

The options in this section allow you to select the geographic area of interest.


For injury-related deaths, cost estimates that are based entirely on system-provided data can be generated for the United States overall, for multi-state census regions, or for individual states. Only one region or state can be selected at a time. For injury-related hospitalizations or emergency department visits (treated and released), cost estimates based on system-provided data are available only for the United States overall.

Base Year

The base year indicates the calendar year that the system-provided data actually represent. Calendar year 2010 is the current base year. (The base year is displayed but is not selectable.)
