Injury-Related Mortality - 1999 and Later

(Module Revised February 2013)

This module provides data on injury-related mortality (deaths) among Wisconsin residents. Please note that the coding system for external causes of death changed beginning with deaths that occurred in 1999. See Trend Analysis Caution for details. A separate module presents data on 1989 - 1998 deaths from injuries.

To shape your query, first decide the injury mortality statistics you want, such as number of deaths or injury death rate. You can narrow your focus to a particular cause or manner of death.

Then select the geographic area and year. You can also choose to focus on selected age, sex or race/ethnicity groups. Finally, choose row and column variables for your table.

See Injury-Related Mortality Module Definitions for notes on the measures.

Rates by race and Hispanic ethnicity depend on population estimates for the rate denominators. Users should note that those estimates for the years 2000 forward are revised annually to incorporate improved information from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) (exit DHS).

Step 1. Which measure do you wish to focus on?










Note: To use the Ranked Underlying Causes measures, you need to select the measure here AND choose Underlying Causes of Injury Death as a row variable in Step 7 below. Causes are sorted (ranked) in order of frequency.

 
Step 2. Select One or More External Cause of Injury (Optional)


(See the ICD-10 codes) (PDF, 29 KB)

Note: To see statistics for specific external causes of death, you must specify one or more causes in the drop-down list above AND choose Underlying Causes of Injury Death as a ROW or COLUMN variable in step 7 or 8 below.

 
Step 3. Select One or More Manner or Intent of Injury Death (Optional)


(See the ICD-10 codes) (PDF, 65 KB)

Note: To see statistics for a specific manner or intent of death, you must specify one or more in the drop-down list above AND choose Manner or Intent of Injury Death as a ROW or COLUMN variable in step 7 or 8 below.


 
Step 4. Choose One or More Geographic Areas
All locations refer to place of residence.

State: Click on the "Wisconsin statewide" button. (This is the default option.)
Region: Click on the "Region" button. Then select the region name, or hold down the Control (Ctrl) key and select multiple regions.
County: Click on the "County" button. Then select the county name, or hold down the Control (Ctrl) key and select multiple counties.
Regional Trauma Advisory Council: Click on the "Regional Trauma Advisory Council" button. Then select the name, or hold down the Control (Ctrl) key and select multiple names.

Note: To see results for individual areas, first select the areas of interest here, then choose "Geographic Area" as a ROW variable or COLUMN variable (Step 7 or 8).

 
Step 5. Choose One or More Years
You can choose to see data for the latest available year (2011). Or you can choose to see one or more single years, or one or more groups of years. Note: If you are requesting data for a small population, it is often useful to combine years of data. WISH suppresses small numbers (when cell size is less than 5) to comply with Wisconsin vital records data privacy guidelines.

Deaths before 1999 must be analyzed separately; see Trend Analysis Caution and the 1989 - 1998 data module.

One or more years: Select a year, or hold down the Control (Ctrl) key and select multiple years.
Specify your own years: Click on this button, then enter the years of interest.

Note: To see results for a series of years (or a series of year groups), first select the years of interest here, then choose "Year(s)" as a ROW variable or COLUMN variable in step 7 or 8 below.

 


 
Step 6. Choose a Specific Subpopulation (Optional)
To select more than one age range (but not all), hold down the Control key and select them.

 
Step 7. CHOOSE A ROW VARIABLE










 
Step 8. CHOOSE A COLUMN VARIABLE (Optional)
Note: Cannot be used with a "Ranked Causes" query.
