Motor Vehicle Traffic Injuries - Cortland County, New York

The 2007 hospitalization discharge data and outpatient emergency department (ED) visit data used were obtained from the Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System (SPARCS) in June of 2009. It has since been determined that Cortland Regional Medical Center had not yet submitted their 2007 ED data. Therefore, the 2007 ED data that is presented is incomplete for Cortland County, and the burden of motor vehicle traffic related injuries is likely higher than that which is represented by these documents. Please note there were no delays with the submission of the Cortland Regional Medical Center 2007 hospitalization data.
