The indicator gives the number of those aged 25-64 who have been in hospital care with the primary diagnosis Injury, poisonings and certain other consequences of external causes (ICD 10: S00-T78) per thousand persons of the same age during the year. Population figures refer to mean population. The indicator covers hospital care in the public sector (municipalities, joint municipal boards and the state), as well as in private sector hospitals.
Among adults, accidents that require hospitalisation usually involve an injury that is more serious than mild and affects the person's well-being and health.
Individual level data in the Care Register for Social Welfare and Health Care are confidential. For the sake of privacy protection, no municipality level data with less than five cases are published.
