Q. Where can I find statistics about injuries and costs of injuries in the United States?
The Centers for Disease Control hosts WISQARS, the Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System. The system allows for the discovery of different types of data relating to injuries, both fatal and non-fatal. Reports can be run to gather data on the number and cost of injuries caused by specific events, ie. fall, fire, overexertion, poisoning, and more.
