Description
  • Abstract

    These data were collected using the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), the primary data system of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). CPSC began operating NEISS in 1972 to monitor product-related injuries treated in United States hospital emergency departments (EDs). In June 1992, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, established an interagency agreement with CPSC to begin collecting data on nonfatal firearm-related injuries to monitor the incidence and characteristics of persons with nonfatal firearm-related injuries treated in United States hospital EDs over time. This dataset represents all nonfatal firearm-related injuries (i.e., injuries associated with powder-charged guns) and all nonfatal BB and pellet gun-related injuries reported through NEISS from 1993 through 2000. The cases consist of initial ED visits for treatment of the injuries. Cases were reported even if the patients subsequently died. Secondary visits and transfers from other hospitals were excluded. Information is available on injury diagnosis, firearm type, use of drugs or alcohol, criminal incident, and locale of the incident. Demographic information includes age, sex, and race of the injured person.

Sampled Universe
United States hospitals providing emergency services.
Sampling
Stratified probability sample of all United States hospitals that had at least six beds and provided 24-hour emergency services. There were four hospital size strata (defined as very large, large, medium, and small, based on the number of annual ED visits) and one children's hospital stratum. From 1993 through 1996, there were 91 NEISS hospital EDs in the sample. In 1997, the sampling frame was updated so that from 1997 through 1999, the sample included 101 NEISS hospital EDs. In 2000, one NEISS hospital dropped of the system so there were 100 NEISS hospital EDs in the sample. In 1997, CPSC collected firearm-related cases using the "old" and "new" NEISS hospital samples for a 9-month period. This dataset includes data from the "new" sample. The overlapping "old" sample is not included. Comparisons of weighted estimates based on the "old" and "new" samples indicated a difference of about 1 percent in the overall national estimate using these samples. The characteristics of firearm-related cases from these two overlapping samples were also very similar.
Note
2005-11-04 On 2005-03-14 new files were added to one or more datasets. These files included additional setup files as well as one or more of the following: SAS program, SAS transport, SPSS portable, and Stata system files. The metadata record was revised 2005-11-04 to reflect these additions.2003-09-16 The 2000 data have been added to the cumulative data. The codebook and SAS and SPSS data definition statements have been updated to reflect these changes.2002-09-19 The 1999 data have been added to the cumulative data and a variable was removed. The codebook and data definition statements have been updated to reflect these changes.2001-05-18 The 1998 data have been added to this study, and the codebook has been updated to reflect these changes.
