  • Description:
    State health agencies rely on injury surveillance to assess specific needs for injury prevention programs and policies and to monitor their effectiveness. Injury surveillance is the ongoing process of tracking and monitoring incidence rates, causes and circumstances resulting in fatal and non-fatal injuries. Analysis and dissemination of the data is utilized in injury prevention efforts. To improve the performance of state injury surveillance systems, a Working Group with members representing the State and Territorial Injury Prevention Directors Association (STIPDA); the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE); the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; and the Society for Advancement of Violence and Injury Research (SAVIR) recommends a set of state surveillance capacities for injury prevention programs in different phases of program development. The Working Group further recommends that 14 specific injuries and injury risk factors be put under surveillance by all states. Finally, the Working Group endorses a set of principles and goals for data system integration.

    The ultimate goal of these recommendations is to improve state injury surveillance to support injury prevention programs and policies. By helping to standardize injury surveillance at the state level, the Working Group also hopes to further integrate injury prevention with traditional public health activities. In the interest of standardization, this report recommends a minimum set of state surveillance standards. However, these recommendations are not intended to limit individual states in setting and achieving their own specific objectives for injury surveillance.

    Report funded by a cooperative agreement (U50/CCU614312) from the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
