Abstract

A Childhood Injury Data System is being developed at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. Data will be collected on all children who are killed in Maryland or who are admitted to the Regional Pediatric Trauma Center or the Regional Burn Center. In addition, comparable data will be collected on a 10% systematic sample of all injured children admitted to hospitals in Maryland. This will be the first systematic epidemiologic investigation of injured children admitted to hospitals in a given state or region.
