Mortality Data – Injury Summary

Causes of death are coded according to ICD-10. Injury can be described in two ways using ICD-10: (1) external cause of injury and (2) the nature of the injury. External cause codes describe the mechanism or cause of the injury (e.g., motor vehicle crash) and the manner or intent of the injury (e.g., unintentional). The nature of injury codes describe the body region or site of the injury (e.g., hip) and the diagnosis (e.g., fracture).
