THE NATIONAL ELECTRONIC INJURY SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM AND BICYCLE-ASSOCIATED ACCIDENTS
The National Electronic Injury Surveillance System used by the Consumer Product Safety Commission has produced data which lead to national estimates of product-associated injuries. This report presents the results of a study of the methods of data collection used by the NEISS and the uses made of such data. An analysis of bicycle-associated injuries based on data from the NEISS is presented which shows a nearly stable total after adjustment for seasonal effects. Misinterpretations of the data which have appeared in various publications are noted and cautions against the misuse of the NEISS data are presented.
