International collaborative effort on injury statistics: 10-year review
International comparisons of injury data may be useful for examining differences in risk and for suggesting potential interventions or hypotheses for future studies. However important issues to be considered in conducting comparisons are related to both the underlying quality of the data and how the data is collected. The International Collaborative Effort (ICE) on Injury Statistics grew out of concerns over the comparability of international injury data. This article outlines the history behind the development of the injury ICE, brief descriptions of current and past projects, collaborations, and reflections on the value of collaboration.
