CDC's Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System (WISQARS) is a leading source of injury statistics in the United States. WISQARS provides data on injury deaths, violent deaths, and nonfatal injuries, and now a new WISQARS fatal injury mapping module allows users to produce customized, color-coded maps of injury death rates, by intent (e.g., unintentional, homicide, or suicide) and mechanism of injury (e.g., motor vehicle-traffic, fall, fire/burn, poisoning, or cut/pierce).

These maps show the distribution of injury death rates nationally, regionally, and for individual states and counties. In addition, annualized estimates of total lifetime medical and work loss costs resulting from injury-related deaths are provided for counties within individual states. The new module can help public health professionals compare injury rates across geographic areas and monitor fatal injuries and their associated burden in the United States. The new fatal injury mapping module is available at http://www.cdc.gov/injury/wisqars.
