Comments

Poisoning, adverse effects of drugs/medicine, choking, late effects and several other conditions do not meet the definition of trauma developed by the National Trauma Registry Advisory Committee and are therefore excluded. Newborns are also excluded.

Rates are not comparable with those appearing in the National Trauma Registry (NTR) annual report due to differences in the method of assigning cases to geography. The NTR data reflects region of hospitalization, while the indicator rates are based on region of residence.
