Violence and Injury Prevention Data and Resources

Injury can be defined as any physical damage to the body caused by violence, intent, or accident.  Costs of injury are staggering and sometimes, as a society, we forget that injury is a major contributing factor in medical costs and deaths in Pennsylvania. Injuries cost billions of dollars in health care and social support resources. Injury is the leading cause of death for Pennsylvania residents age 1 to 44, but deaths are a small proportion of the impact of injury.
