Fields

  • YEAR: Year in which the fatality occurred
  • HEALTH REGION: Health region containing the hospital accepting the admission (not the location of the crash)
  • HOSPITALIZATIONS: Number of motor vehicle related hospitalizations in British Columbia

Notes:

The criteria for this report are as follows:

  • cases restricted to Acute and Rehabilitation Care Levels, with a length of stay (LOS) greater than 24 hours,
  • all cases treated in BC hospitals, including non-BC residents, but excluding BC residents treated out of province (hosp ≠ 997),
  • categorization of cases based on motor vehicle user type and are defined by ICD10--CA codes (pedestrian (V02-V04, V091-V093, V099), cyclist (V12-V14, V194-V196, V199), motorcyclist (V20-V29), occupant of car, van or light truck (V40-V59), occupant of other vehicle type (V30-V39, V60-V79)
  • Cases are categorized within a specific calendar year based on admission date.
  • The number of cases are based on the number of hospitalizations that occurred and not the number of individuals, therefore a patient may have multiple hospitalizations during one year.
