- Beginning in July 2000, the National Center for InjuryPrevention and Control (NCIPC), and Centers for Disease Control andPrevention (CDC), in collaboration with the United States ConsumerProduct Safety Commission (CPSC), expanded the National ElectronicInjury Surveillance System (NEISS) to collect data on all types andcauses of injuries treated in a representative sample of United Stateshospitals with emergency departments (ED). This system is called theNEISS-All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP). The NEISS-AIP is designed toprovide national incidence estimates of all types and external causesof nonfatal injuries and poisonings treated in United States hospitalEDs. Data on injury-related visits are being obtained from a nationalsample of 66 out of 100 NEISS hospitals that were selected as astratified probability sample of hospitals in the United States andits territories with a minimum of 6 beds and a 24-hour ED. Thesample includes separate strata for very large, large, medium, andsmall hospitals, defined by the number of annual ED visits perhospital, and children's hospitals. The scope of reporting goes beyondroutine reporting of injuries associated with consumer-relatedproducts in CPSC's jurisdiction to include all injuries andpoisonings. The data can be used to (1) measure the magnitude anddistribution of nonfatal injuries in the United States, (2) monitorunintentional and violence-related nonfatal injuries over time, (3)identify emerging injury problems, (4) identify specific cases forfollow-up investigations of particular injury-related problems, and(5) set national priorities. A fundamental principle of this expansioneffort is that preliminary surveillance data will be made available ina timely manner to a number of different federal agencies with uniqueand overlapping public health responsibilities and concerns. Also,annually, the final edited data are released as public use data filesfor use by other public health professionals and researchers. Thesepublic use data files provide NEISS-AIP data on nonfatal injuriescollected from July through December each year. Variables in the datasets include body part affected by injury, diagnosis, case disposition, fireinvolvement, immediate cause of injury, injury as determined by theCDC, intent of injury, intent with sexual/other assault, locales whereinjured, precipitating cause of injury, perpetrator to victimrelationship in assault, reason for assault, whether injury wassports-related or traffic-related, whether it was a violent injury,and date of injury. Demographic information specifies race, sex, andage of patient. Cf.: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR34640.v2
