AWISS INJURY INDICATOR TOOL NOW AVAILABLE

A new Injury Indicator Tool is now available through the AWISS website!

Currently data on 20 AWISS based indicators can be accessed via separate Tableau dashboards.  These dashboards can be selected under the main menu option ‘INJURY INDICATOR TOOL’. Data are presented in several formats and via several groupings on each dashboard, including: by age and Local Authority/Health Board, age and sex, area of deprivation and by year. The majority of data are presented as crude rates per 100,000 population.

The agreed indicators aim to establish the current epidemiology of key injury issues across Wales, provide clear monitoring mechanisms for injury reduction, help implement prevention strategies, raise awareness of high-risk targetable age groups and strengthen evidence for the need of complete and improved data collection on injury and cause of injury coding.
