  • Description:
    CDC’s WISQARS™ (Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System) is an interactive, online database that provides fatal and nonfatal injury, violent death, and cost of injury data from a variety of trusted sources. Researchers, the media, public health professionals, and the public can use WISQARS™ data to learn more about the public health and economic burden associated with unintentional and violence-related injury in the United States. Users can search, sort, and view the injury data and create reports, charts, and maps based on the following:

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

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

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

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

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

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