Abstract

This article describes the results of the first statewide external cause of injury (E-code) reporting system that includes emergency department (ED) visits. The results indicate that for every injury-related death, there are 20 hospitalizations and 174 ED visits. Although firearms and motor vehicle crashes were the leading causes of injury-related deaths, falls and motor vehicle crashes were the leading causes of ED visits. An analysis of injuries in one metropolitan statistical area in the state demonstrates similarities and differences from the statewide results. The statewide reporting of cause of injury information in ED visits provides valuable information for injury control efforts.
