a profile of fatal injuries in South Africa
Fourth Annual Report of the National Injury Mortality Surveillance System 2002

Background
This short report, which covers the period 1 January to 31 December 2002, is the fourth annual report of the National Injury Mortality Surveillance System (NIMSS).

As a result of the continuing expansion of the system, we have taken steps to improve our data management and reporting mechanisms.

This report has been generated by a software programme that interfaces with our database and produces a number of standard outputs. The Crime, Violence and Injury Lead Programme can provide more detailed analyses in the form of customised reports on request.

Full report available in pdf format (623 kb)

Acknowledgements
We wish to acknowledge the Departments of Health and Safety and Security for supporting this project. In particular, we would like to thank the forensic pathologists and police personnel at the various mortuaries, who made these data available to us.
