  1. CI = Confidence Interval; ED = emergency department; phys. = physician's; unwtd = unweighted
  2. 1 Row percentages (for example, of 12–14 year-olds, the percent who experienced the injury outcome)
  3. 2 Any documented injury in the administrative databases (hospitalization and physician billing data)
  4. 3 At least 1 documented physician's office visit for injury within 1 year prior to the interview
  5. 4 Any documented emergency department or inpatient visits for injury within 1 year prior to the interview
  6. * Proportion should be interpreted with caution due to high sampling variability
