(Data Updated July 2021)
The Wisconsin Injury Program linked crash data from the Department of Transportation (DOT) with non-fatal hospitalizations for years 2017-2019. The linkage was focused on the hospitalization injury subset and those stays with an ICD-10-CM code noting unintentional motor vehicle (MV) traffic injury (See injury technical notes). This module is geared towards injury programmatic staff, such as local health departments, traffic safety program staff, school staff and other organizations focused on motor vehicle injuries.
Not all health visits with a motor vehicle injury have a corresponding match with a crash record. For more detail, see crash-hospitalization documentation.
Data measures and output are different than the other three injury modules. Counts and percentages will be reported in the results, as the focus is on distribution of crash and injury characteristics. Rates are NOT reported, as the data in this module do not represent all hospitalizations with motor vehicle injuries (See crash-hospitalization documentation).
