Colorado is one of 21 states with spinal cord injury registries. Colorado's registry, the ENS, begun in January 1986, is a collaborative project between the Rocky Mountain Regional Spinal Injury System and the CDPHE and is funded through a National Institute on Disability, Rehabilitation, and Research grant and a cooperative agreement with CDC.
During 1987-1992, CDC funded SENSOR projects in 10 states to develop state-based capacity for recognizing, reporting, investigating, and preventing selected occupational disorders. These 10 states and four additional states received renewed SENSOR funding in 1992.
The range in estimated incidence rates reflects differences in case definitions. Some studies, for example, include hospital admissions only, which exclude acute fatal injuries.
