For example, steps CPSC could consider include improving the NEISS
racial and ethnic classification system; working with NEISS
hospitals to improve collection of data on patient race and ethnicity; and leveraging related data collection efforts, such as those sponsored by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the National Center for Health Statistics, or the National Institutes of Health.

The survey instrument consisted of 78 specific safety hazards which were divided into categories based upon known hazards that NEISS
has documented to cause injury (4).

The battery source was identified in 17% of the NEISS
cases and included toys, flashlights, remote controls, watches, hearing aids, and light-up jewelry.
This report describes the results of that analysis, which identified 584 cases of illness or injury associated with pool chemicals in the six SENSOR-Pesticides states and indicated an estimated national total of 28,071 cases (based on 688 NEISS
cases) during that period.

(National Electronic Injury Surveillance System) data system for 1999.
