CI = Confidence Interval; ED = emergency department; phys. = physician's; unwtd = unweighted

1 Row percentages (for example, of 12–14 year-olds, the percent who experienced the injury outcome)

2 Any documented injury in the administrative databases (hospitalization and physician billing data)

3 At least 1 documented physician's office visit for injury within 1 year prior to the interview

4 Any documented emergency department or inpatient visits for injury within 1 year prior to the interview

* Proportion should be interpreted with caution due to high sampling variability
