Injuries caused by accidents and violence are the third leading cause of death nationally

 
 
 
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation created a report on a State By State basis of Injury Prevention Policies.
Focus One is on State ranking of injuries caused by accidents and violence.
Focus Two is on State policies to prevent injuries.
There are 10 indicators of injury prevention across each state that offer an overview of areas of strengths and weakness in state policies to prevent injuries.
These indicators are: Seatbelts, Drunk Driving, Motorcycle Helmets, Booster Seats, Bicycle Helmets, Partner Violence, Teen Dating Violence, Concussions, Prescription Drugs and E-Codes.
# For each of these Injury Prevention Policy focuses, New York State ranked nationally at the top for the lowest death rate due to injuries and nationally at the top for the strongest state policies to prevent injuries. Out of the 10 indicators, New York meet 9 of these.
SAFE KIDS New York does a lot of work in the areas of many of these Safety Indicators.
