Not-in-Traffic Surveillance (NiTS) System 2008-2010 Noncrash Injuries Database User’s Manual

The Not-in-Traffic Surveillance (NiTS) system is a virtual data collection system designed to provide counts and details regarding fatalities and injuries that occur in nontraffic crashes and in noncrash incidents. This document describes the creation of the noncrash injury database using a special study conducted by the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s National Electronic Injury Surveillance System All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP) for NHTSA. Frequent types of noncrash injury incidents included injuries while entering or exiting vehicles (boarding or alighting), injuries from closing doors, overexertion while unloading cargo from a vehicle or pushing a disabled vehicle, cuts from parts of the vehicle, striking a vehicle or struck by a part of the vehicle, falls from or against vehicles, incidents involving jacks or hoists, and radiator or antifreeze burns. This document also describes the noncrash injury database, which is available as a Microsoft Excel file.
