Combined Injury Report:
The Combined Injury Report is the principal resource for hospitalization and death data related to violence and injury in the Commonwealth. The report describes injuries in Pennsylvania by both mechanism (motor vehicle, poisoning, firearm, etc.) and intent (unintentional, self-inflicted/suicide or assault/homicide). Each section includes demographic and trend information as well as a map of rates across Pennsylvania.
For older reports of death and hospitalization data related to violence and injury, as well as for county injury hospitalization profiles, please visit the Injury Statistics home page.
NOTE: Many of the injury reports are in PDF format. Adobe Acrobat Reader is needed to view these files.
County Childhood Injury Profiles:
The Childhood Injury Profiles are five-page documents summarizing injury hospitalizations and deaths among ages 0-14 at the local level. Using ten years of data, from 2000 to 2009, the profiles outline major categories of childhood injury and provide comparisons to the state as a whole.
Profiles have been created for each County, Health District and Safe Kids Region. Please use the pdf bookmarks to navigate.
