WISH Query: Injury-Related Hospitalizations (After 2015)

(Data updated September 2018)

This module provides data on the injury-related hospitalizations of Wisconsin residents for 2016 to 2017. A separate module presents data on hospitalizations for 1995 to 2015.

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. For more information see the technical notes.
