This data includes fatalities to both firefighters and other fire victims.The NFIRS is a reporting standard that fire departments use to uniformly report on the full range of their activities, from fire to emergency medical services (EMS) to equipment involved in the response. The NFIRS database comprises about 75 percent of all reported fires that occur annually.

  11. National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS)

    National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS)

    The National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) is a state-based surveillance system that links data from law enforcement reports, coroners and medical examiners reports, vital statistics records, and crime laboratories to assist each participating state in designing and implementing tailored prevention and intervention efforts.

    NVDRS defines a death due to violence as "a death resulting from the intentional use of physical force or power against oneself, another person, or against a group or community." NVDRS collects information about homicides, suicides, deaths by legal intervention-excluding executions-and deaths of undetermined intent. In addition, information about unintentional firearm injury deaths (i.e., the individual did not intend to discharge the firearm) is collected, although these deaths are not considered violent deaths by the above definition. Deaths are included if their underlying causes (ICD codes) are included in these categories.

Unweighted, it contains data from approximately 30 million discharges each year. Weighted, it estimates roughly 130 million ED visits. 

    Sampled from the State Inpatient Databases (SID) and State Emergency Department Databases (SEDD), HCUP's NEDS that can be used to create national and regional estimates of ED care. The SID contain information on patients initially seen in the ED and then admitted to the same hospital. The SEDD capture information on ED visits that do not result in an admission (i.e., treat-and-release visits and transfers to another hospital).

The survey also collects data on mental disorders, co-occurring substance use and mental disorders, and treatment for substance use and mental health problems.

    The data can be used to identify correlates of these substance use and mental illness measures and provide estimates at the national, State, and substate level. The data can also be used to determine the prevalence of substance use or mental illness among demographic or geographic subgroups, as well as to estimate the trends in these measures over time, and to determine the need for substance abuse or mental health treatment services.

The NIS is the largest publicly available all-payer inpatient health care database in the United States, yielding national estimates of hospital inpatient stays. Beginning in 2012, the NIS was redesigned. It was formerly a sample of hospitals, and all discharges from those hospitals were retained. The new NIS starting with 2012 data is a sample of discharges from all hospitals participating in HCUP.

    Beginning with the 2012 data year, HCUP's NIS is a 20 percent sample of discharges from all community hospitals participating in HCUP, excluding rehabilitation and long-term acute care hospitals. The NIS covers all patients, including individuals covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance, as well as those who are uninsured.

  22. National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS)

    National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS)

    The National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) is an incident-based reporting system for crimes known to the police. For each crime incident coming to the attention of law enforcement, a variety of data are collected about the incident. These data include the nature and types of specific offenses in the incident, characteristics of the victim(s) and offender(s), types and value of property stolen and recovered, and characteristics of persons arrested in connection with a crime incident.

    The NIBRS series is a component part of the Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR), a nationwide view of crime administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), based on the submission of crime information by participating law enforcement agencies. The NIBRS was implemented to meet the new guidelines formulated for the UCR to provide new ways of looking at crime for the 21st century. NIBRS is an expanded and enhanced UCR Program, designed to capture incident-level data and data focused on various aspects of a crime incident.

  23. Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI)

    Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI)

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) produces comprehensive, accurate, and timely counts of fatal work injuries. CFOI is a Federal-State cooperative program that has been implemented in all 50 States and the District of Columbia since 1992. Information about each workplace fatal injury—occupation and other worker characteristics, equipment involved, and circumstances of the event—is obtained by cross-referencing the source records, such as death certificates, workers' compensation reports, and Federal and State agency administrative reports. To ensure that fatal injuries are work-related, cases are substantiated with two or more independent source documents, or a source document and a follow-up questionnaire. Data compiled by the CFOI program are issued annually for the preceding calendar year.

  24. Occupational Injuries and Illness: Industry Data

    Occupational Injuries and Illness: Industry Data

    The Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses is a Federal/State program in which employer's reports are collected annually from about 176,000 private industry establishments and processed by State agencies cooperating with the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Summary information on the number of injuries and illnesses is copied by these employers directly from their recordkeeping logs to the survey questionnaire. The questionnaire also asks for the number of employee hours worked (needed in the calculation of incidence rates) as well as its average employment (needed to verify the unit's employment-size class).

    The survey excludes all work-related fatalities as well as nonfatal work injuries and illnesses to the self employed; to workers on farms with 10 or fewer employees; to private household workers; and, nationally, to federal, state, and local government workers.

  25. National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN)

    National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN)

    A resource since 1988, the National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN) promotes scholarly exchange among researchers in the child maltreatment field. NDACAN acquires microdata from leading researchers and national data collection efforts and makes these datasets available to the research community for secondary analysis.

    NCANDS is a voluntary data collection system that gathers information from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico about reports of child abuse and neglect. NCANDS was established in response to the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act of 1988. The data are used to examine trends in child abuse and neglect across the country, and key findings are published in our Child Welfare Outcomes Reports to Congress and annual Child Maltreatment reports.
