The All Wales Injury Surveillance System produces annual injury related health indicators for Wales using several data sources, two of which are the Emergency Department Data Set (EDDS) and Patient Episode Database for Wales (PEDW). This report describes changes to the AWISS specifications used to identify injury attendances/admissions in these two data sources.
We are pleased to present the new AWISS Injury Indicator report for the period 2010-2020.
The latest 2018 estimates for AWISS Injury Indicators are now available – please refer to the Injury Indicator Tool section.
Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs) estimates are also now available on the following page: https://www.awiss.org.uk/all-cause-injuries-disability-adjusted-life-years/
The 2019 AWISS Injury Indicator Report is now available. The main aim of the report is to provide an overview of the key injury indicator findings, and support informed injury reduction policy and activities across Wales.
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.
