While CODES (Crash Outcome Data Evaluation System) projects have expanded to 25 states, there is no standardized reporting of the outcome measures that are available with linked data. This paper describes efforts to build a standard format for reporting these outcomes. This format is conceptualized by laying the injury "pyramid" on its side. Outcome measures are reported as columns across a page with increasing levels of severity from left to right. Several aspects of format development are discussed, including levels of reporting, specific outcome measures, rates, and selection of appropriate denominators. These simplified reports can be used to plan further studies or as a source of information for fact sheets for further dissemination. Examples of implementation of these reports are provided from the Maine CODES project.
