(Module Revised October 2007)
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 1999 and later deaths from injury.
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)
