Term: Injury Mortality Causes

Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2010-08-11


The distribution of causes of injury deaths by major categories in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) system, based on death data from the Vital Statistics Mortality Registry Data. See the Injury Categories (External Causes, ICD-9-CM) glossary term for a complete listing of categories.

This included all "E-codes" in the ICD-9-CM system, excluding those for misadventures, reactions, complications, or adverse effects of medical, surgical or pharmaceutical treatments. See a detailed list of exclusions in the External Cause of Injury Codes and Categories concept.

From January 1, 2000, Vital Statistics data were coded using ICD-10, so these codes were converted to ICD-9-CM codes using the conversion file created by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).
