29(a). Injuries: home, leisure, school: self-reported incidence 


Definition

  1. Proportion of individuals reporting to have had an accident at home, during leisure activities, and/or at school during the past 12 months, which resulted in injury.
  2. Proportion of individuals reporting to have had an accident at home, during leisure activities, and/or at school during the past 12 months, which resulted in injury for which medical treatment was sought.

Rationale

Annually, in the EU more than 60 million people receive medical treatment for an injury, from which an estimated 7 million are admitted to hospital. Two-thirds of all injuries occur in home and leisure environments - a trend that is on the increase across Europe. Detailed injury data (in particular on external circumstances as activities, settings, products involved) makes it possible to develop prevention measures, monitor injury trends, prioritise issues, guide policies and evaluate the success of interventions designed to reduce injuries.

Relevant policy areas

  • Healthy ageing, ageing population
  • (Preventable) Burden of Disease (BoD)       
  • Preventable health risks
  • Child health (including young adults)
  • (Planning of) health care resources               
  • Health in All Policies (HiAP)

29(b). Injuries: home, leisure, school: register-based incidence
 

Definition

Number of accidents at home and/or during leisure activities during the past 12 months, resulting in an injury that required treatment in a hospital, expressed per 100,000.

30(a). Injuries: road traffic: self-reported incidence  


Definition

  1. Proportion of individuals reporting to have had a road traffic accident, which resulted in injury during the past 12 months.
  2. Proportion of individuals reporting to have had a road traffic accident, which resulted in injury for which medical treatment was sought during the past 12 months.

Rationale

The EU IDB estimates that road injuries account for 10% of all hospital treated injuries or a total of 4.3 million victims annually. Though preventive measures have been proven effective, resulting in declining incidence rates, large health gains can still be achieved and inequalities between Member States can still be diminished.

  • (Preventable) Burden of Disease (BoD)       
  • Preventable health risks
  • Child health (including young adults)
  • (Planning of) health care resources               
  • Health in All Policies (HiAP)

31. Injuries: workplace   


Definition

Standardised incidence rate of serious accidents at work. 

Rationale

This indicator provides information about the risk of the occurrence of a serious accident at work. This is regarded as an indication/determinant of the (occupational) health and an indication of safety regulations in a country.

Relevant policy areas

  • Health inequalities (including accessibility of care)
  • (Preventable) Burden of Disease (BoD)
  • Occupational health
  • (Planning of) health care resources
  • Health in All Policies (HiAP)

Suicide attempt

This section contains those indicator topics that are not ready yet for incorporation in international regular data collections (and thus for implementation) due to considerable methodological and/or data availability problems.

32. Suicide attempt   


Definition

To be developed: Proportion of persons having ever attempted suicide.

Rationale

Suicide is an important public health issue and highlights mental health priority. Data on suicide attempts supplement the information already provided by mortality data (see indicator 13 disease-specific mortality).

Relevant policy areas

  • (Preventable) Burden of Disease (BoD)
  • Mental health
  • (Planning of) health care resources
