  • Description:
    CDC’s WISQARSTM (Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System) is an interactive database that provides U.S. injury data including fatal and nonfatal injury, violent death, and cost of injury data. Anyone can use WISQARSTM to learn more about the public health and economic impact of injury in the United States.

    You can search, sort, and view the data, and create reports, charts, maps and graphics based on the following:

    • Intent of injury (unintentional injury, homicide/assault, legal intervention, suicide/self-harm.)

    • Cause of injury (e.g., fall, fire, firearm, motor vehicle crash, poisoning, suffocation)

    • Body region of injury (e.g., traumatic brain injury, spinal cord, torso, upper and lower extremities)

    • Type of injury (e.g., fracture, dislocation, internal injury, open wound, amputation, and burn)

    • Geographic location (where the injury occurred national, regional, state)

    • Sex, race/ethnicity, and age of the injured person
