WISH Query: Injury-Related Hospitalizations

(Data updated July 2015)

This module provides data on the injury-related hospitalizations of Wisconsin residents during 1995-2013.

The data count inpatient stays, not individual patients. This means that patients transferred between hospitals, readmitted to a hospital for further treatment, or otherwise treated in more than one inpatient stay have more than one record.

Step 1. Select a Measure of Injury-Related Hospitalizations

Measure

* To use the Ranked Causes measures, you need to select the measure here AND choose "Causes of Injury" as a row variable in Step 7 below. Causes are ranked in order of frequency.

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

Cause of Injury

Choose one or more of these standard groupings for the cause of injury (PDF, 66 KB). To see statistics for each of several groups, be sure to also choose "Causes of Injury" as a ROW or COLUMN variable in step 7 or 8 below.

Specify your own cause-of-injury groupings by entering a 3-digit E-code without the "E." You may enter single numbers (e.g., 885) or a range (e.g., 886-888). (See 3-digit codes.) To see statistics for each of several groups, be sure to also choose "User-Specified Causes of Injury: Groups" as a ROW or COLUMN variable in step 7 or 8 below.

Specify detailed causes of injury by entering a 4-digit E-code without the "E." You may enter single numbers (e.g., 8851) or a range (e.g., 8851-8859). (See 4-digit codes.) To see statistics for each of several groups, be sure to also choose "User-Specified Causes of Injury: Detailed" as a ROW or COLUMN variable in step 7 or 8 below.

Step 5. Choose One or More Years

Choose the year in which the patient was discharged. You can choose to see one or more single years, or one or more groups of years.

Note: WISH suppresses small numbers (when cell size is less than 5) to comply with data privacy guidelines. For a small population, it is useful to combine years of data.
