TRAFFIC RELATED INJURIES AMONG CHILDREN: AN INJURY SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM. FINAL PROGRESS REPORT

This project established a surveillance system to investigate motor vehicle related injuries to children aged 0-14 years in Orange County, California. A multi-hospital and Coroner's Office monitoring system for pediatric motor vehicle occupant injuries, operational since 1980, was expanded to include pedestrians and bicyclists. The data bases developed include: Motor Vehicle Occupant Master File (1980 - March 1989), 4,344 cases; Traffic Related Injuries File (April 1987 - March 1989), 1,344 Occupants, 463 Pedestrians, 346 Bicyclists; and California Highway Patrol/Hospital Monitoring System File (April - September 1987), CHP - 298 Bicyclists/166 Pedestrians, HMS 107 Bicyclists/113 Pedestrians, and Matched Cases (54 Bicyclists/54 Pedestrians). The project objectives were met through a number of analytic studies. The studies related to each objective along with results and how the results were disseminated are presented in this report.
