The Ontario Injury Prevention Resource Centre is pleased to announce the official release of the Ontario Injury Data Report. The report presents the counts and rates of injury related emergency department visits, hospitalizations and deaths by cause of injury in Ontario as a whole as well as separately for each of the province’s health units.
The OIPRC hopes that by providing these counts and rates, communities throughout the province can better understand the most common injury causes throughout the various areas in our province, which will assist in developing and implementing evidence based strategies tailored to their specific injury needs.
Because of the large size of the combined report, the data tables for each health unit are presented as a separate downloadable PDF report. In addition, separate PDFs cover the methodology of the report and provide an overview of the total provincial data.
We invite you to visit http://www.oninjuryresources.ca/home/ for more information about the report and to download any chapters you’re interested in reading.
