The leading causes of injury in Iowa in each age group are then presented to provide insight on prevention efforts that are needed in various portions of the life span of Iowans. Next, the trends of injury over the five‐year period are presented to provide information on any major changes in the data over time, which can inform decisions on potential interventions, legislative or reporting method changes, and other similar efforts.
