Since 1921, Injury Facts has been the watchdog publication for preventable (accidental) death and injury in the United States. In 2018, Injury Facts™ moved online! The new website (injuryfacts.nsc.org) is a free resource featuring interactive charts and graphs, so visitors can explore and compare the data as never before.
Join Ken Kolosh, NSC Statistics Manager and the creator of Injury Facts, as he introduces you to the new website and explores the latest trends, research and statistics to explain why preventable injuries are now the third leading cause of death. Among the trends Mr. Kolosh will highlight:
