RWJF Online Map Ranks States on Trauma Injury Prevention

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has developed an interactive online map that provides state-by-state injury death rates and ranks states on injury prevention based on 10 key indicators of steps states can take to prevent injury. The map uses data from The Facts Hurt — a policy report RWJF issued last year. According to the report, “millions of injuries could be prevented annually if more states adopted additional research-based injury prevention policies, and if programs were fully implemented and enforced.” To view the map, visit the RWJF website.
