A State-by-State Injury Rating

HealthyAmericans.org just posted a injury prevention report card for each state. Based on an evaluation on “10 key indicators of steps states can take to prevent injuries”, including such things as enforcing seat belts, drunk driving, domestic violence, etc…

One one scored a perfect 10, but CA and New York got a 9 while WA, OR and North Carolina each scored an 8.
At the bottom of the list Montana and Ohio ended up with only 2 out of ten.

Using the map on the site, you can click on your state to find out where you rank and why.
