WISQARS Cost of Injury Reports Enhancements:
Generating Cost Estimates Using Your State-Based
This presentation provides a demonstration of the Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System (WISQARS) Cost of Injury Reports with new enhancements (to be release soon). New enhancements allow the user to generate total lifetime medical and work loss cost estimates either (1) by using national data sources or (2) by entering their own case counts for geographic areas (e.g., counties) or groups of interest (e.g., hospitalized patients with traumatic brain injuries) and applying average costs from national data sources.
The webinar also provides an example scenario, using unintentional motor vehicle - traffic deaths, of how to use the Cost of Injury Reports module along with the Fatal Injury Mapping module (county-level, color maps of injury death rates) to help determine a target population for injury prevention efforts and assess their cost to society at the state level.
