Falls Data

CDC’s WISQARS™ is an interactive, online database that provides fatal and nonfatal injury, and cost of injury data. Researchers, the media, public health professionals, and the public can use WISQARS™ data to learn more about the public health and economic burden associated with unintentional injury in the United States.

CDC Older Adult Falls Data: New interactive maps released in September 2019, including deaths from falls and falls by state.

The NC Division of Public Health’s Injury and Violence Prevention Branch provides statewide surveillance of fall injuries that result in self-reported injuries, emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and deaths.
