  1. Trends in nonfatal and fatal firearm-related injury rates in the United States, 1985-1995.

    Article - En anglais

    Study objective 

    To characterize trends in annual estimates of nonfatal firearm-related injuries treated in US hospital emergency departments and to compare trends in quarterly rates of such injuries with those of firearm-related fatalities in the US population.

    Methods 

    Data on nonfatal firearm-related injuries were obtained from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) by review of medical records for June 1,1992, through May 31,1995.

    Data on firearm-related fatalities were obtained from the National Vital Statistics System for January 1,1985, through December 31,1995.

    NEISS comprises 91 hospitals that represent a stratified probability sample of all hospitals in the United States and its territories that have at least six beds and provide 24-hour emergency service.

    The main outcome measures were numbers, percentages, and quarterly population rates for nonfatal and fatal firearm-related injuries.

    Results 

    An estimated 288,538 nonfatal firearm-related injuries (95% confidence interval [Cl], 169,776 to 407,300) were treated in EDs during the 3-year study period.

    The annual number of nonfatal firearm-related injuries increased from 99,025 for June 1992 through May 1993 (95% Cl, 58,266 to 139,784) to 101,669 for June 1993 through May 1994 (95% Cl, 59,822 to 143,516), then decreased to 87,844 for June 1994 through May 1995 (95% Cl, 51,687 to 124,001).
