                Message from the State Surgeon General
                Injury is the leading cause of death of Florida residents ages 1-44 every year.
                Overall, injury was the 3rd leading cause of death of Florida residents in 2005,
                after heart disease and cancer. Most, if not all, of these injuries are preventable.

                 With the formal establishment of the Office of Injury Prevention within the
                 Department of Health in 2003, the State of Florida renewed its commitment to
reduce the needless burden of preventable injuries to its residents and visitors. Since then, by
collaborating with its public and private partners, the Office of Injury Prevention has achieved
several major milestones in its mission, including the development of the 2004-2008 Florida
Injury Prevention Strategic Plan, and the formation of the Florida Injury Prevention Advisory
Council and Goal Teams to implement the strategic plan. In August 2005, Florida was one of
30 states awarded a five year Public Health Injury Surveillance and Prevention Program
cooperative agreement grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that provides
financial support for implementing this strategic plan.

The Office of Injury Prevention is pleased to present the 2007 Florida Injury Data Report. This
report reflects the culmination of grant activities in the second year of the cooperative
agreement, and also fulfills an objective of Goal 6 in the 2004-2008 Florida Injury Prevention
Strategic Plan, to increase the quality and availability of statewide and community-specific injury
data for planning, surveillance, and evaluation. We hope that residents and injury prevention
stakeholders throughout the state will use the information in this report to promote, protect, and
improve the health and safety of all people in Florida by reducing the burden of injuries in their
communities.


Sincerely,




Ana M. Viamonte Ros, M.D., M.P.H
State Surgeon General

Executive Summary

This report was produced as part of the Public Health Injury Surveillance and Prevention
Program cooperative agreement between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) and the Florida Department of Health, Office of Injury Prevention. This report also fulfills
an objective of the 2006-2007 Action Plan of the 2004-2008 Florida Injury Prevention Strategic
Plan to produce an injury surveillance data report for distribution to Florida’s residents and injury
prevention stakeholders.

For this report, deaths and hospitalizations of Florida residents in 2005 were analyzed for all
injuries, unintentional injuries, suicides and suicide attempts/self-inflicted injuries, homicides and
assault injuries, unintentional drownings and non-fatal near drownings, unintentional falls,
unintentional fires, firearm injuries, motor vehicle related injuries (including injuries to motor
vehicle occupants, motorcyclists, pedal cyclists, and pedestrians), poisonings, traumatic brain
injuries, and hip fractures among residents aged 65 years and older. The statewide
demographics of each injury (sex, race/Hispanic ethnicity, and age-specific rates) are
presented, as well as other characteristics unique to each injury. Data is also presented in
charts and graphs for easier understanding.

In additions, age-specific death and hospitalization numbers and rates for each injury are given
for residents of each of Florida’s 67 counties to inform residents and stakeholders at the local
level. Except for age-specific rates, all rates have been age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. standard
population for comparability between counties, and between counties and the state.

An interpretation of the data is provided for each injury, and examples of what Florida is doing to
reduce the incidence of each injury are given. These examples are not intended to be
exhaustive. The Office of Injury Prevention conducted a separate inventory of injury prevention
resources in the state as another part of the cooperative agreement with CDC.

The report concludes with appendices that describe the data sources used for this report and
case definitions for each injury. Resident population estimates and demographics, a discussion
of calculating age-adjusted rates, and contact information are also included.

All Injuries
Injury is defined as an “acute exposure to physical agents such as mechanical energy, heat,
electricity, chemicals, and ionizing radiation in amounts or at rates above or below the threshold
of human tolerance” that damages the body.1

An injury can be described by its mechanism and intent. Mechanism refers to the external
cause of injury, such as drowning, fall, fire, firearm, motor vehicle traffic crash, poisoning, or
suffocation. Intent refers to the motivation of the injury perpetrator behind the cause of injury,
and is classified as unintentional (accidental), self-inflicted (suicides and suicide attempts),
assaults (homicides), or undetermined. Injury mechanisms can be of any intent. An injury can
also be described by the physical nature (type) of injury and the body region injured, as for
example, a hip fracture.1 In 2005:

    •   There were 12,199 deaths and 116,968 hospitalizations due to injuries of all mechanisms
        and intents of Florida residents.

    •   Males made up 70% of all injury deaths and females made up 30%, whereas females
        made up 51% of all injury hospitalizations and males made up 49%.

    •   Whites made up nearly three-quarters of all injury deaths and hospitalizations, Hispanics
        13%, while Blacks made up 10% of all injury hospitalizations and 12% of all injury deaths.

    •   Unintentional injuries made up 72% of all injury deaths, suicides 19%, and homicides 8%.

    •   Unintentional injuries made up 72% of all injury hospitalizations, suicide attempts 7%, and
        assaults 4%.

    •   The leading mechanisms of injury deaths were motor vehicle accidents (28%), poisonings
        (20%), firearms (15%), falls (14%), suffocation (8%), and drownings (4%).

    •   The leading mechanisms of injury for injury hospitalizations were falls (40%), motor
        vehicle accidents (15%), poisonings (12%), struck by/against (3%), and cut/pierce (3%).

What is Florida Doing to Reduce Injuries?

   •   Established by Florida Statute 401.243 in 2004, the Florida Department of Health, Office
       of Injury Prevention’s mission is “to provide leadership to public and private partners
       dedicated to reducing Florida's injury burden.”

   •   The 2004-2008 Florida Injury Prevention Strategic Plan was developed to carry out this
       mission by meeting 8 goals that address infrastructure, funding, community capacity,
       training, interventions, data, evaluation, and advocacy.

   •   Representing key stakeholder constituencies in Florida’s injury prevention workforce, the
       Florida Injury Prevention Advisory Council and Goal Teams were established to
       implement the 2004-2008 Florida Injury Prevention Strategic Plan.

   •   Florida is one of 30 states funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s
       Public Health Injury Surveillance and Prevention Program to implement the 2004-2008
       Florida Injury Prevention Strategic Plan.

Unintentional Injuries
Unintentional injuries, also called “accidental injuries,” result from a variety of mechanisms of
injury – drownings, falls, fires, motor vehicle crashes, etc. – that were not intentionally caused
by someone. Injury prevention advocates prefer using the term “unintentional injuries” rather
than “accidental injuries” because many, if not all, of these injuries are preventable. In 2005:

   •   There were 8,743 deaths and 84,856 hospitalizations due to unintentional injuries of
       Florida residents.

   •   Males made up 67% of unintentional injury deaths and females made up 33%, whereas
       females made up 52% of unintentional injury hospitalizations and males made up 48%.

   •   Whites made up about three-quarters of unintentional injury deaths and hospitalizations.
       Hispanics made up 14% of unintentional injury deaths and 13% of unintentional injury
       hospitalizations. Blacks made up 10% of unintentional injury deaths and 9% of
       unintentional injury hospitalizations.

   •   The top three mechanisms of injury for unintentional injury deaths were motor vehicle
       accidents (40%), poisonings (22%), and falls (19%). The top three mechanisms of injury
       for unintentional injury hospitalizations were falls (55%), motor vehicle accidents (20%),
       and poisonings (5%).

   •   Florida residents ages 75 and over had the highest rates of unintentional injury deaths
       and hospitalizations. After age 65, the unintentional injury hospitalization rate for females
       surpasses the rate for males.


What is Florida Doing to Reduce Unintentional Injuries?

   •   Florida has 15 local Safe Kids coalitions and chapters dedicated to the prevention of
       accidental injuries in children ages 14 and under in the following counties: Alachua,
       Bradford, Brevard, Broward, Columbia, Dixie, Duval, Flagler, Gilchrist, Hillsborough, Lee,
       Leon, Levy, Manatee, Marion, Miami-Dade, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pasco,
       Pinellas, Polk, St. Johns, Sarasota, Seminole, Suwannee, Union, and Volusia. The
       Florida Department of Health, Office of Injury Prevention is the lead agency for Safe Kids
       Florida.

   •   The Department of Elder Affairs and Communities for a Lifetime are working to provide
       seniors the opportunity to remain healthy and independent in their own communities. A
       focus is on increased safety through improved coordination of transportation, community
       planning, universal home designs, and neighborhood interaction.

   •    The Florida Association of Area Agencies on Aging meets on a regular basis to share
        data, plan advocacy activities and design coordinated aging programs. The eleven
        partner organizations work closely with the Florida Department of Elder Affairs to
        develop effective and efficient projects benefiting a large number of Florida's
        constituency of over three and a half million seniors.

Suicides and Suicide Attempts/Self-Inflicted Injuries
Suicides and suicide attempts refer to injuries that were purposefully (intentionally) self-inflicted.
Firearms and poisonings are common mechanisms of injury for suicides and suicide attempts,
although these can result from any mechanism. In 2005:

   •   There were 2,308 suicides and 7,891 hospitalizations for suicide attempts of Florida
       residents.

   •   Males made up 76% of suicides and females made up 24%, whereas females made up
       58% of hospitalizations for suicide attempts and males made up 42%.

   •   Whites made up 84% of suicides, Hispanics 9%, and Blacks 5%. Whites made up 77%
       of hospitalizations for suicide attempts, Hispanics 12%, and Blacks 8%.

   •   The top three mechanisms of injury for suicides were firearms (50%), poisonings (20%),
       and suffocation (21%). The top three mechanisms of injury for hospitalized suicide
       attempts were poisonings (92%), cut/pierce (4%), and firearms (1%).

   •   Males aged 75 years and older had the highest rates of suicides, while females ages 15-
       19 had the highest rate of hospitalizations for suicide attempts.


What is Florida Doing to Reduce Suicides and Suicide Attempts?

   •   The Florida Office of Drug Control (ODC) in the Executive Office of the Governor is
       coordinating suicide prevention efforts in the state of Florida. In January 2005, ODC
       released the 2005-2010 Florida Suicide Prevention Strategy, a 5-year blueprint for
       reducing the incidence of suicide, teen suicide, and elder suicide by one-third by 2010.

   •   The Statewide Office of Suicide Prevention (OSP) as a unit of the Office of Drug Control
       was established in May 2007 by Florida Statute 14.2019. The OSP, in collaboration with
       the Suicide Prevention Coordinating Council, will develop and implement the Florida
       Suicide Prevention Strategy statewide and assist communities in carrying out local
       suicide prevention efforts.

   •   The Beth Foundation provides the Florida Youth Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training
       to recognize the warning signs of suicidal behavior in youth.

Homicides and Assault Injuries
Homicides and assault injuries result from intentionally injuring (assaulting) another person.
Firearms and stabbings are common mechanisms of injury for assaulting someone else,
although assaults can result from any mechanism that injures another person intentionally. In
2005:

   •   There were 988 homicides and 4,658 hospitalizations for assault injuries of Florida
       residents.

   •   Males made up 78% of homicides and 85% of hospitalizations for assault injuries, while
       females made up 22% of homicides and 15% of hospitalizations for assault injuries.

   •   Blacks made up 46% of homicides, Whites 34%, and Hispanics 16%. Whites made up
       43% of hospitalizations for assault injuries, Blacks 36%, and Hispanics 16%.

   •   The top 4 mechanisms of injury for homicides were firearms (64%), stabbings (13%),
       struck by/against (5%), and suffocation (4%). The top 3 mechanisms of hospitalized
       assault injuries were struck by/against (36%), stabbings (22%), and firearms (18%).

   •   Males ages 20-24 had the highest rates of homicides and hospitalizations for assault
       injuries.


What is Florida Doing to Reduce Homicides and Assault Injuries?

Violence prevention requires the collaboration of public health, law enforcement, social service
agencies, faith-based organizations, schools, and other community organizations, to address
the root causes of violence, which are often related to crime, drugs, poverty, and other social
ills. These are just a few examples of violence prevention programs in Florida:

   •   NOT ONE MORE: The Miami-Dade Coalition to Prevent Youth Violence

   •   Turning Point: Rethinking Violence, Shands Jacksonville Medical Center

   •   Florida Department of Health, Sexual Violence Prevention Program

   •   Florida Department of Children and Families, Florida Coalition Against Domestic
       Violence

   •   The GATE Program is an educational interventional performance based program for
       male juvenile weapon offenders referred from the Juvenile Justice System. The program
       is conducted in a medical environment that provides them with information and first-hand
       exposure to the consequences of violence. The program provides education about gun
       behaviors and violence, while exposing young offenders to the aftermath of injury and
       death by weapons and focuses on the traumatic consequences of pediatric victims and
       their families.

Unintentional Drownings and Nonfatal Near Drownings
With its warm climate and many natural and man-made bodies of water, drowning and near
drowning is a significant public health problem in Florida, especially among young children. In
2005, including all ages:

    •   There were 382 unintentional drowning deaths and 300 nonfatal near drowning
        hospitalizations of Florida residents.

    •   Males made up 81% of unintentional drowning deaths, while females made up 19%.
        Males made up 67% of nonfatal near drowning hospitalizations, while females made up
        33%.

    •   Whites made up 61% of unintentional drowning deaths, Hispanics 20%, and Blacks
        16%. Whites made up 57% of nonfatal near drowning hospitalizations, Blacks 17%, and
        Hispanics 16%.

    •   Thirty percent (30%) of unintentional drowning deaths occurred in natural water, 25% in
        pools, 9% while boating, 5% in bathtubs, and 31% other.

    •   At least eighty five percent (85%) of nonfatal near drowning hospitalizations were
        unintentional. Twelve percent (12%) were undetermined or no intent was given.


Florida Toddler Drowning Deaths Ages 1-4: An Urgent Call to Action

The 5th Annual National Drowning Prevention Symposium was held for the first time in Florida in
January 2006, bringing national attention to the problem of unintentional drownings in the state,
especially of young children ages 1-4.

    •   Children ages 1-4 have the highest rates of unintentional drowning deaths and nonfatal
        near drowning hospitalizations. The drowning death rate of Florida resident children
        ages 1-4 is the highest in the nation.1

    •   Between 1999-2005, fifteen percent (15%) of all children ages 1-4 who drowned in the
        U.S. were from Florida, the most of any state.1

    •   Over two-thirds (67%) of drowning deaths of Florida children ages 1-4 occurred in
        swimming pools from 1999-2005.

What is Florida Doing to Prevent Children from Drowning?

In response to these alarming statistics, the Florida Department of Health has set an ambitious
goal of zero drownings among children in Florida, starting with the following activities:

   •   During the summers of 2006 and 2007, the Office of Injury Prevention implemented the
       “Keep Your Eyes on the Kids” drowning prevention campaign, in conjunction with county
       health departments, Children’s Medical Services regional offices, and Safe Kids coalitions
       and chapters, in counties with the highest numbers of drowning deaths of children ages
       1-4.

   •   In 2006, “Keep Your Eyes on the Kids” included paid drowning prevention television spots
       produced in partnership with the Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida that aired in the top
       15 counties.

   •   As the lead agency for Safe Kids Florida, the Office of Injury Prevention formed a unique
       partnership with Denny’s Restaurants in 2006 to educate patrons about child safety
       issues through Denny’s Kids Safety Zone Program. Each quarter a different child safety
       subject was featured. Drowning prevention and water safety was the subject of the
       second quarter of 2006 and began on May 6, 2006 at a Denny’s Restaurant in Tampa.

   •   The Office of Injury Prevention hosted a Drowning Prevention Marketing Symposium on
       May 15, 2006 in Tampa and July 18, 2007 in Fort Lauderdale, bringing the following
       traditional and non-traditional partners to work together to prevent children ages 1-4 from
       drowning in Florida:

   •   In 2006, workgroups on marketing, funding, and building partnerships for collaboration
       were formed and met by conference calls coordinated by the Office of Injury Prevention
       on a periodic basis, working to advance the goals of the Marketing Symposium. Similar
       internal workgroups were formed at the Florida Department of Health’s Central Office.




                                               21
•   A survey of Florida county property appraisers’ offices conducted by the Office of Injury
    Prevention in 2006, found approximately 1.1 million residential in-ground swimming pools
    recorded on county property tax rolls statewide. About 21% of these pools were built
    after October 1, 2000, when the state’s Residential Swimming Pool Safety Act went into
    effect, which requires the installation of one of four pool safety features.

•   In 2006, a review of 58 toddler pool drowning deaths occurring between 2003-2006 in
    Florida that were investigated by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, found
    that 71% of these cases had accessed the pool through a door leading from the home to
    the pool area, and that most drownings had occurred while the caregiver was engaged
    in a routine household activity that had allowed a lapse in supervision of the toddler to
    occur.

•   In 2006, the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) presented on drowning prevention
    activities at the Florida Swimming Pool Association’s (FSPA) 2006 Swimming Pool Safety
    Forum. Collaboration will continue with this important partner when FDOH and FSPA host
    a joint Water Safety Forum/Drowning Prevention Marketing Symposium in April 2008.

•   A Drowning Prevention Initiative Workgroup Meeting was held at the Broward County
    Health Department on October 27, 2006, during which drowning statistics and drowning
    prevention best practices from Australia and the City of Phoenix, Arizona (which had zero
    drowning deaths of children during the summer of 2006) were shared by the Office of
    Injury Prevention with county health department staff and local stakeholders from
    Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Plans for a drowning prevention pilot project in these
    two counties were submitted to the Office of Injury Prevention in November 2006. Mail-
    based surveys and focus groups were employed throughout 2007 to collect information
    on drowning prevention knowledge and practices among residents of the two counties.
    This information will be used to further develop plans for the pilot projects.

Unintentional Falls
Fall-related injuries occur most often among the elderly, especially after age 75. With 17% of
Florida’s resident population aged 65 and older in 2005, fall-related injuries are a significant
cause of injury mortality and morbidity, especially hospitalizations, that is only expected to
increase in coming years, as the state’s senior population continues to grow. In 2005:

   •   There were 1,685 deaths and 46,236 hospitalizations due to unintentional fall-related
       injuries of Florida residents.

   •   Unintentional fall-related deaths made up 14% of all injury deaths and 19% of all
       unintentional injury deaths.

   •   Unintentional falls were the leading cause of all injury hospitalizations (40%) and the
       leading cause of all unintentional injury hospitalizations (55%).

   •   Males made up 53% of unintentional fall-related deaths, but only 36% of hospitalizations.
       Females made up 47% of unintentional fall-related deaths, but 64% of hospitalizations.

   •   Whites made up 86% of unintentional fall-related deaths, Hispanics 8%, and Blacks 5%.
       Similarly, Whites made up 81% of unintentional fall-related hospitalizations, Hispanics
       12%, and Blacks 5%.

   •   Over three-quarters of fatal unintentional falls and one-quarter of hospitalized
       unintentional falls occurred at home or in residential institutions (two-thirds of
       hospitalizations did not indicate place of fall occurrence).

   •   After age 65, the rates of fall-related deaths and hospitalizations increase exponentially
       to their highest rates. Males ages 65 and over had the highest unintentional fall-related
       death rates, while females ages 65 and over had the highest unintentional fall-related
       hospitalization rates.


What is Florida Doing to Reduce Fall-Related Injuries?

The Department of Elder Affairs and Communities for a Lifetime are working to provide seniors
the opportunity to remain healthy and independent in their own communities. A focus is on
increased safety through improved coordination of transportation, community planning, universal
home designs, and neighborhood interaction.

The Florida Association of Area Agencies on Aging meets on a regular basis to share data, plan
advocacy activities and design coordinated aging programs. The eleven partner organizations
work closely with the Florida Department of Elder Affairs to develop effective and efficient
projects benefiting a large number of Florida's constituency of over three and a half million
seniors.

Unintentional Fires
Thanks to advances in fire safety, rescue, and prevention, deaths from fires have declined over
the years to the low rates seen today, both nationally and in Florida,1 However, significant
disparities still exist, as Florida’s seniors ages 75 and over had 2-3 times the death rate from
unintentional fire-related injuries in 2005 than the general population. In 2005:

    •   There were 133 unintentional fire-related deaths and 501 unintentional fire-related
        hospitalizations of Florida residents.

    •   Males made up 66% of unintentional fire-related deaths and 76% of unintentional fire-
        related hospitalizations, while females made up 34% of unintentional fire-related deaths
        and 24% of unintentional fire-related hospitalizations.

    •   Whites made up more than two-thirds of unintentional fire-related deaths and
        hospitalizations, and Hispanics made up 8% of deaths and 12% of hospitalizations.
        Blacks made up 15% of unintentional fire-related hospitalizations and 20% of
        unintentional fire-related deaths.

    •   Eighty-seven percent (87%) of fatal unintentional fire-related injuries and at least 23% of
        unintentional fire-related injuries resulting in hospitalization occurred at home (62% of
        hospitalizations did not indicate place of fire occurrence).

    •   Females ages 85 and over had the highest unintentional fire-related death rate that was
        3 times higher than the general population rate. Males ages 15-19 had the highest
        unintentional fire-related hospitalization rate that was 2.5 times higher than the general
        population rate.


What is Florida Doing to Reduce Fire-Related Injuries?

Members of the Florida Association of Fire and Life Safety Educators (a section of the Florida
Fire Marshals and Inspectors Association), and the Florida Society of Public Fire and Life Safety
Educators (a section of the Florida Fire Chiefs’ Association), both offer active programs of fire
and life safety education through the fire service in communities throughout Florida.

The Department of Elder Affairs and Communities for a Lifetime are working to provide seniors
the opportunity to remain healthy and independent in their own communities. A focus is on
increased safety through improved coordination of transportation, community planning, universal
home designs, and neighborhood interaction.

Firearms
Firearm injuries are a leading cause of injury mortality, especially among adult males. While a
quarter of firearm-related hospitalizations of Florida residents in 2005 were for unintentional
firearm injuries, nearly all firearm-related fatalities were the result of intentional acts of violence
(suicides and homicides). In 2005:

    •   There were 1,828 deaths and 1,481 hospitalizations due to firearm injuries of Florida
        residents.

    •   Firearms were the 3rd leading cause of all injury fatalities of Florida residents (15%), after
        motor vehicle traffic and non-traffic (29%) and poisonings (21%).

    •   Males made up the majority of firearm deaths (84%) and hospitalizations (89%).

    •   While Whites made up two-thirds of firearm deaths, they made up one-third of firearm
        hospitalizations. On the other hand, while Blacks made up less than a quarter of firearm
        deaths, they made up over half of firearm hospitalizations. Hispanics made up 10% of
        firearm deaths and 12% of firearm hospitalizations.

    •   About two-thirds of firearm deaths were the result of suicides, and about one-third were
        the result of homicides. Assaults made up 58% of firearm hospitalizations, unintentional
        firearm injuries 29%, suicide attempts 7%, and undetermined intent 6%.

    •   Males ages 85 and over had the highest firearm death rate, while males ages 20-24 had
        the second highest firearm death rate and the highest firearm hospitalization rate.


What is Florida Doing to Reduce Firearm Injuries?

    •   Florida Statute 790.174 requires safe storage of firearms to prevent access to minors.

    •   Community violence prevention programs such as NOT ONE MORE: The Miami-Dade
        Coalition to Prevent Youth Violence sponsor gun buy-back and gun lock give-away
        events to reduce the risk of injuries from firearms in the community.

    •   Law enforcement is one of the key stakeholder constituencies represented on the
        Florida Injury Prevention Advisory Council.

Motor Vehicle Accidents
Between 1999-2004, Florida had the highest motor vehicle traffic injury death rate among the
five largest states in the nation (California, Texas, New York, Florida, and Illinois) that was 23%
higher than the national rate.1 A study released in 2004 found that five of the top 10 most
dangerous cities in the nation for pedestrians were in Florida.2 A secondary enforcement seat
belt law, lack of a child booster seat law, and the repeal of a universal motorcycle helmet law in
2000 present additional challenges to traffic safety in Florida’s motoring environment. In 2005:

    •   There were 3,491 deaths and 16,893 hospitalizations of Florida residents due to motor
        vehicle accidents.

    •   Males made up 72% of motor vehicle accident-related deaths and 64% of motor vehicle
        accident-related hospitalizations. Females made up 28% of motor vehicle-related deaths
        and 36% of motor vehicle-related hospitalizations.

    •   Whites made up 6% of motor vehicle accident-related deaths, Hispanics 20%, and
        Blacks 13%. Similarly, Whites made up 64% of motor vehicle accident-related
        hospitalizations, Hispanics 17%, and Blacks 14%.

    •   Motor vehicle occupants made up 68% of motor vehicle accident-related deaths,
        pedestrians 16%, motorcyclists 13%, and pedal cyclists 3%. Motor vehicle occupants
        made up 70% of motor vehicle accident-related hospitalizations, motorcyclists 17%,
        pedestrians 10%, and pedal cyclists 3%.

    •   Males ages 20-24 had the highest motor vehicle accident-related death and
        hospitalization rates.

What is Florida Doing to Reduce Motor Vehicle Traffic Injuries?

    •   The Florida Department of Transportation and its traffic safety partners have developed
        a new Strategic Highway Safety Plan, supported by a State Traffic Safety Information
        System Improvement Grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that
        was rolled out in September 2006.

    •   Supported by grants from the Florida Department of Transportation, the Florida
        Department of Health, Office of Injury Prevention administers the Florida Special Needs
        Occupant Protection Program and the Florida Bicycle Helmet Promotion Program.

    •   Beginning in 2007, ten Florida trauma centers are implementing WalkSafe, a school-
        based pediatric pedestrian safety program led by Dr. Gillian Hotz of Jackson Memorial
        Hospital/Ryder Trauma Center in Miami and funded by a grant from the Florida
        Department of Health, Bureau of Emergency Medical Services.

Poisonings
Poisonings are a leading cause of both injury mortality and morbidity. While over half of
hospitalizations of Florida residents in 2005 for poisonings were the result of intentional self-
poisonings, most poisoning deaths are unintentional. A 2004 study found that Florida's death
rate from unintentional and undetermined poisonings jumped 325% between 1990-2001.1 In
2005:

    •   There were 2,489 poisoning deaths and 13,737 hospitalizations for poisonings of Florida
        residents.

    •   Males made up 65% of poisoning deaths and females made up 35%, whereas females
        made up 55% of poisoning hospitalizations and males made up 45%.

    •   Whites made up 86% of poisoning deaths, Hispanics 7%, and Blacks 6%. Whites made
        up three-quarters of poisoning hospitalizations, and Hispanics and Blacks 11% each.

    •   More than three-quarters of poisoning deaths were unintentional, 18% were suicides,
        and 4% were undetermined. On the other hand, over half of poisoning hospitalizations
        resulted from suicide attempts, 33% were unintentional, and 14% were undetermined.

    •   Thirty-five percent (35%) of poisoning deaths resulted from poisonings by narcotics and
        psychodysleptics (hallucinogens), which include cannabis and its derivatives, cocaine,
        codeine, heroin, lysergide (LSD), mescaline, methadone, morphine, and opium
        (alkaloids).

    •   Thirty-two percent (32%) of poisoning hospitalizations resulted from poisonings by
        tranquilizers and other psychotropic agents, and 22% resulted from poisonings by
        opiods and narcotics.

    •   Males ages 45-54 had the highest poisoning death rate, while females ages 35-44 had
        the highest poisoning hospitalization rate.

What is Florida Doing to Reduce Poisonings?

    •   With call centers in Jacksonville, Tampa, and Miami, the Florida Poison Information
        Center Network (FPICN) provides emergency poison prevention and management
        information 24 hours a day to calls made within Florida to the national poison prevention
        hotline (1-800-222-1222). FPICN is one of the key stakeholders represented on the
        Florida Injury Prevention Advisory Council.

•   Working in partnership with other state and federal agencies, community organizations,
    and law enforcement, the Florida Office of Drug Control was established in the Executive
    Office of the Governor to coordinate the state’s drug control efforts, utilizing a three-
    pronged approach of prevention, treatment, and law enforcement.

•   The Florida Department of Health has been working to raise awareness of the danger of
    unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning resulting from improper ventilation of gasoline-
    powered portable electric generators. This public health threat emerged as 8 hurricanes
    impacted the state in 2004-2005.

•   In 2007, the Florida Department of Health participated in a nationwide assessment by
    the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) concerning prescription
    drug abuse, overdose, and death. This assessment will provide the nation and state with
    valuable information on effective prevention strategies and epidemiological research.

Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the leading types of injury to the body. Thirty-one percent
(31%) of all injury deaths of Florida residents in 2005 had a TBI diagnosis documented as a
contributing cause of death, and 14% of all hospitalizations for injuries had TBI documented as
a principal or secondary diagnosis. In addition, there are an unknown number of mild TBI cases
in the general population that go untreated and undiagnosed. In 2005:

   •   There were 3,911 deaths of Florida residents in which a TBI diagnosis was documented
       as an immediate and/or contributing cause of death. There were 16,859 hospitalizations
       for injuries of Florida residents in which TBI was documented as a principal or secondary
       diagnosis.

   •   Males made up almost three-quarters of TBI deaths and almost two-thirds of TBI
       hospitalizations, while females made up more than one-quarter of TBI deaths and more
       than one-third of TBI hospitalizations.

   •   Whites made up nearly three-quarters of TBI deaths, Hispanics 13%, and Blacks 11%.
       Similarly, Whites made up 69% of TBI hospitalizations, Hispanics 15%, and Blacks 11%.

   •   The top three mechanisms of TBI deaths were motor vehicle traffic and non-traffic
       (33%), firearms (31%), and falls (23%). The top three mechanisms of TBI resulting in
       hospitalizations were falls (33%), motor vehicle traffic and non-traffic (31%), and struck
       by/against (7%), while 18% of TBI hospitalizations did not indicate a mechanism of
       injury.

   •   Traumatic brain injury-related death and hospitalization rates increase exponentially
       after age 65. Males ages 85 and up had the highest rates overall.


What is Florida Doing to Reduce Traumatic Brain Injuries?

   •   The Florida Department of Health’s Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program (BSCIP), a
       nationally recognized program serving brain and spinal cord injured patients in Florida,
       and its private sector partner, the Brain Injury Association of Florida (BIAF), sponsor
       education and prevention programs on brain injury. BSCIP and BIAF are key
       stakeholders represented on the Florida Injury Prevention Advisory Council.

   •   Trauma centers throughout Florida provide injury prevention education to their patients.

Hip Fractures, Ages 65 Years and Older
Hip fractures are a leading type of injury among Florida’s older residents. Thirty-seven percent
(37%) of all injury hospitalizations of residents aged 65 years and older in 2005 had a hip
fracture diagnosis documented as a principal or secondary diagnosis. In 2005:

   •   There were 19,000 hospitalizations for injuries of Florida residents aged 65 years and
       older in which hip fracture was documented as a principal or secondary diagnosis.

   •   Females made up the majority (73%) of hip fracture hospitalizations while males made
       up 27%.

   •   Whites made up 86% of hip fracture hospitalizations, Blacks 3%, and Hispanics 2%.

   •   Hip fracture hospitalization rates increased dramatically for each five year age range
       with female’s rates consistently higher than males.

   •   Falls were the leading mechanism of hip fractures resulting in hospitalizations. Seventy-
       eight percent (78%) of hip fractures were related to a fall. Nineteen percent (19%) of hip
       fracture hospitalizations did not indicate a mechanism of injury.


What is Florida Doing to Reduce Hip Fractures?

   •   The Department of Elder Affairs and Communities for a Lifetime are working to provide
       seniors the opportunity to remain healthy and independent in their own communities. A
       focus is on increased safety through improved coordination of transportation, community
       planning, universal home designs, and neighborhood interaction.

Appendix A: Data Sources and Case Definitions 1,2,3
Two sources of data were used in this report, death certificate data and hospital discharge data.
The attributes of each data source are briefly discussed below, and the case definitions for each
injury are given for each data set.


Death Certificate Data


Source:                      Statewide death certificate data comes from the Florida Department of
                             Health, Office of Vital Statistics, and are stored in centralized Microsoft
                             SQL databases that are accessible to authorized users through a Data
                             Source Name (DSN) connection using Microsoft SQL Query Analyzer,
                             SAS, or SPSS statistical software packages.

Completeness:                Data is collected on all Florida resident deaths, as well as non-resident
                             deaths that occurred in the state of Florida, making this a complete data
                             source that allows for population-based surveillance of deaths from injury.

Timeliness:                  Demographic information is entered into the death certificate database
                             within two weeks of a person’s death, and causes of death are added
                             within 30 days after the demographic information is first entered, making
                             this the timeliest data source in Florida’s injury surveillance system.
                             Causes of death are coded according to the International Classification of
                             Diseases, 10th Edition (ICD-10).

Data Quality:                Provisional data are updated nightly until a final death data set for a
given
                             calendar year is obtained and is not changed after a defined point in time.
                             Year-by-year comparisons generally show comparable numbers of
                             deaths by injury mechanism and intent across years, instilling reasonable
                             confidence in the quality of the death data set, with the exception of motor
                             vehicle crash deaths in the early 2000’s, due to an automated coding
                             error by the National Center for Health Statistics immediately after the
                             transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 cause of death coding in 1999.

ICD-10 Case Definitions for Injury Deaths


External causes of death (injury mechanism and intent) are found in the underlying cause of
death code field in the death certificate database. This field was searched for deaths of Florida
residents in 2005 due to injuries according to the case definitions below. Deaths in which a
traumatic brain injury (TBI) diagnosis was documented as a contributing cause of death were
found by searching the twenty contributing cause of death code fields in the death certificate
database for a TBI diagnosis code, according to the case definition for TBI below.

Hospital Discharge Data


Source:                Statewide hospital discharge data comes from the Florida Agency for
                       Health Care Administration (AHCA), Florida Center for Health Information
                       and Policy Analysis (formerly the State Center for Health Statistics), and
                       is accessible on CD-ROM by submitting a Limited Data Set Data Use
                       Agreement for data without patient identifiers.

Completeness:          Data is collected on all hospital discharges from all non-federal acute care
                       inpatient facilities licensed by AHCA to operate in Florida (exclusive of
                       Veterans’ Administration and other federal hospitals, rehabilitation
                       centers, and psychiatric hospitals), making this a complete data source
                       that allows for population-based surveillance of hospitalizations for injury.
                       Included in this data set are readmissions, transfers, and deaths that
                       occurred during hospitalization.


Timeliness:            Data is accessible on a quarterly basis when 75% of licensed inpatient
                       facilities have certified the accuracy of the data reported that quarter. The
                       data is 100% certified usually within 180 days after the end of the quarter.

Data Quality:          External causes of injury (mechanism and intent) are coded in hospital
                       discharge data according to E-codes of the International Classification of
                       Diseases, 9th Edition, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM). E-codes are
                       necessary to determine the intent and mechanism of the injury that
                       required the hospitalization. E-coding was required of hospitals by AHCA
                       in 1997. Statewide E-coding rates of injury hospitalizations in the 9
                       secondary diagnosis code fields of the hospital discharge data set
                       improved through 2001, but leveled off from 2002-2005. In 2006, the
                       addition of 3 separate E-code fields in the hospital discharge data set
                       dramatically improved the quality and completeness of E-coding of injury
                       hospitalizations.


       1997  1998  1999  2000  2001  2002  2003  2004  2005  2006

ICD-9-CM Case Definitions for Injury Hospitalizations


ICD-9-CM N-codes indicating the physical nature of injury are found in the principal diagnosis
code field of the hospital discharge data set. This field was searched for hospitalizations of
Florida residents in 2005 due to injuries according to the case definition for all injuries below.
The 9 secondary diagnosis code fields were then searched for E-codes indicating external
causes of injury according to the case definitions below. Hospitalizations in which TBI or hip
fracture was documented as a principal or secondary diagnosis were found by searching the
principal and secondary diagnosis code fields for diagnosis N-codes according to the case
definitions for TBI and hip fractures below.

Appendix C: Calculation of Age-Adjusted Rates
All injury death and hospitalization rates in this report have been age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S.
standard population. This allows rates to be compared between counties, and between
counties and the state, that may have different underlying population age distributions that do
not permit direct comparison of rates. By convention, the 2000 U.S. standard population is used
as the standard population age distribution1.

To calculate an age-adjusted rate, the number of injury deaths or hospitalizations are divided
into the following standard age groups: <1, 1-4, 5-14, 15-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, 65-74,
75-84, and 85+. The number of deaths or hospitalizations in each age group are then divided
by the resident population estimate for that age group (shown in Appendix B), and multiplied by
100,000 to obtain the age-specific (crude) rate per 100,000 resident population for that age
group. These age-specific rates are then weighted by multiplying by the appropriate population
weight, according to the age distribution of the 2000 U.S. standard population. The individual
weighted rates are then summed to obtain the age-adjusted (weighted) rate per 100,000
resident population. An example of calculating the age-adjusted unintentional injury death rate
of 45.65 deaths per 100,000 Florida residents in 2005 is shown below:

                                                                                        Age-Adjusted

As described above, age-specific rates are calculated as an intermediate step in the calculation
of age-adjusted rates. Age-specific injury death and hospitalization rates are shown in this
report only for state-level data and not for county-level data. However, age-specific rates for a
particular county can be calculated as described above, using the data included in this report on
injury deaths and hospitalizations broken out by age group for residents in each of Florida’s 67
counties and the resident population estimates.

Florida’s Rural Counties: A Statistical Paradox

Thirty-three of Florida’s 67 counties meet the statutory definition of “rural” as a geographic area
with a population density of less than 100 individuals per square mile, as defined by Florida
Statute 381.0406(2)(a). Portions of other counties may also be defined as rural by the U.S.
Census Bureau. These 33 counties include the following:

          Baker          Franklin       Hardee         Lafayette       Okeechobee Wakulla
          Bradford       Gadsden        Hendry         Levy            Putnam     Walton
          Calhoun        Gilchrist      Highlands      Liberty         Sumter     Washington
          Columbia       Glades         Holmes         Madison         Suwannee
          DeSoto         Gulf           Jackson        Monroe          Taylor
          Dixie          Hamilton       Jefferson      Nassau          Union

It appears at first glance that many of these counties had some of the highest age-adjusted
injury death and hospitalization rates in the state in 2005. However, a closer look reveals that
many of these rates were based on very small numbers of deaths and hospitalizations, making
these rates statistically unstable.

Thus, a statistical paradox exists in which the high rates of injury deaths and hospitalizations
seen in rural county residents are often based on very small numbers of deaths and
hospitalizations. Caution should be taken when interpreting and using all rates based on small
numbers. This applies to both rural and non-rural counties.

An exception to this paradox is the high rates of motor vehicle traffic deaths and hospitalizations
seen in rural county residents, which are based on numbers of deaths and hospitalizations due
to this injury mechanism that are not insignificant. Evidence from other states, especially in the
Southeast, suggests that this is a very real problem in rural areas, and supports the high motor
vehicle traffic death and hospitalization rates observed in this report among residents of rural
counties in Florida in 20051,2. Lack of seat belt use among rural motorists, hazardous conditions
of rural roads, and delayed access to emergency medical care, have been suggested as some
possible reasons for the high traffic mortality observed in rural areas, that present multiple
challenges to traffic safety in these areas1,2.
