WISH Query: Injury-Related Hospitalizations (1995-2015) (Data Updated May 2019) This module provides data on the injury-related hospitalizations of Wisconsin residents from 1995 through 2015. This data subset is limited to stays with an ICD-9-CM (International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification) principal diagnosis code related to an injury (see Technical Notes for more detail). Step 1. Select "non-fatal" or "all visits." We recommend the "Non-fatal ONLY" filter (the default selection) because it prevents counting a health care visit more than once. Patients who died while in the hospital are not included. This keeps the effects of injury from appearing artificially high. Selecting "ALL visits" will show the total volume of hospitalizations due to injury, including those visits that resulted in a death. Non-fatal ONLY (default) ALL visits Step 2. Select a measure of hospitalizations Number of hospitalizations for injuries This is the observed count of hospitalizations. Unadjusted Rate This is the observed rate and is displayed as the number of hospitalizations per 100,000 residents. Please use this rate when describing injury among your population of interest. This rate should not be used to compare different populations or time periods to each other as we have not adjusted these rates to account for differences in age composition across populations. Age-adjusted Rate We recommend that you select age-adjusted rates when making comparisons between two populations (for example, Southern Region injury rates compared to Northern Region injury rates), or two different time periods (for example, 2010 injury rates compared to 2015). Age-adjustment accounts for differences in age composition across populations and time. We use the Standard U.S. Population for Year 2000 for age-adjustment. Rank of 13 major injury cause categories Rank is based on number of hospitalizations and is not inclusive of all injuries. Injury cause categories in this option are mutually exclusive (see Technical Notes). If this option is selected, Steps 3, 7 and 8 will be skipped. Step 3. Select ONLY ONE option from the list below. The specific injury options listed below do not include ALL possible injury causes or manners. These options are also NOT mutually exclusive (for example, a motor vehicle injury may also be classified as a traumatic brain injury). The first valid external cause of injury code is reviewed and determines how the hospitalization will be classified. The exception is for traumatic brain injury (TBI), which includes review of all diagnosis codes; cause of TBI is based on first valid e-code. ALL injuries Assault-related injury (ANY manner of assault) Drowning Firearms: ALL OR choose one of the following manners of firearm injury (not inclusive of all manners): Unintentional Assault Self-inflicted Hip fracture (ages 65 and older only) Poisoning: ALL OR choose one of the following: Non-drug-related poisoning Drug-related poisoning Suffocation Self-harm injuries: ALL Note: Self-harm injuries are not inclusive of all self-harm hospitalizations. Hospitalizations with a primary diagnosis not related to injury, for instance, a mental health diagnosis, are not included in the hospitalization subset and are therefore not counted here. See Technical Notes for detail on data subset creation. OR choose one of the following methods of self-harm injury (not inclusive of all methods; more than one method could have been used though counts are based on first valid e-code. See Technical Notes.): Firearm Poisoning Suffocation Cutting or piercing objects Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): ALL OR choose one of the following manners of TBI injury (not inclusive of all manners): Unintentional fall-related TBI Unintentional struck by or against someone or something TBI Unintentional motor vehicle-related TBI Assault-related TBI Unintentional fall-related injuries Unintentional fire-related injuries Unintentional Motor Vehicle (MV) injury: ALL OR choose one of the following types of MV injury (not inclusive of all types): Occupant (may include the driver or passenger of motor vehicle) Motorcycle Pedal cyclist Pedestrian Step 4. Choose Area of Patient's Residence Hold down the control (Ctrl) key to select multiple counties, regions, or regional trauma council areas. Note: To see results for individual areas, choose "Geographic Area" as a ROW variable or COLUMN variable in Step 7 or 8 below. See the region map, or regional trauma advisory council map.
