Research on injuries is a high priority to inform public policy
that reduces deaths, hospitalizations and associated costs.
Principles for research design and analysis of injury incidence and
severity are emphasized. Review of extant surveillance data reveals
numerous flaws that must be changed to increase usefulness of the
data. Research designs of studies of injury causation and
evaluation of countermeasures are often inappropriate and mislead
analytic and injury control efforts. Appendices to chapters
illustrate research projects that influenced public policy
affecting the reduction of motor vehicle fatalities per population
by half in the U.S. The principles illustrated by these studies can
be applied to other types of injury.
