The second edition of “Injuries in the European Union” is an up-to-date summary of the main results of current injury statistics and surveys at the EU level. European injury data made publicly accessible through international data providers such as Eurostat or the World Health Organization (WHO) is combined with recent hospital-based data of the EU Injury Database (IDB) on home and leisure accidents in order to give a comprehensive view of injuries in Europe at a glance.
As a standard, data is used from the years 2003 to 2005 (in most cases a 3 year average) of the 27 EU Member States.
Exceptions and information about the data sources are stated in the Annex. Data were extracted May 2007.
Reports with data from the European Injury Data Base (IDB) are available on the EUROSAFE website.
