to know how many Wisconsin
people died or were hospitalized from falling? How many were victims of violent crime? Interested in the details
of violent deaths as reported by those investigating the case? Or
compare it to national statistics? The Wisconsin Injury Prevention Program
utilizes data from multiple sources to monitor injury-related events in Wisconsin.
Data Sets Managed by the Wisconsin Injury Prevention
Interactive Statistics on Health (WISH) is
a web-based data system which includes injury related hospitalizations,
emergency department visits and deaths. The system can be queried by
demographics (age, sex, race, ethnicity), geographic area (statewide,
county, State Health Regions, Regional Trauma Advisory Councils), and by
specific injury causes and manner of injury.
Wisconsin Violent Death Reporting System (WVDRS) is based on the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention’s National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS). Wisconsin
is one of 17 states funded by CDC to begin NVDRS. WVDRS is a statewide surveillance system that collects detailed
information on all homicides, suicides, deaths of undetermined intent,
deaths resulting from legal intervention, and deaths related to
unintentional firearm injuries. Wisconsin
Violent Injuries and Deaths: Annual Report (PDF,
2.6 MB) describes the who, what, when, where, why, and how of violent incidents in Wisconsin, and offers insight for prevention, programmatic development,
intervention, and evaluation.
Medical Examiner/Coroner Electronic Reporting System Software provides
real time, standardized, web-based electronic data entry and access on
site. CASEPOINT has the ability to release real-time injury related data
to agencies throughout the state. A
plan to integrate CASEPOINT and WVDRS is being developed.
