Preventing Unintentional Injury in Minnesota:
A Working Plan for 2020

The goal of Preventing Unintentional Injury in Minnesota: A Working Plan for 2020 is to share data, provide possible strategies, suggest potential partners and help all of us work together more effectively. It explores questions such as:
  • What are our biggest problems?
  • Who is most at risk?
  • What trends do we see?
Ultimately, its aim is to enhance the quality of life in our state by helping Minnesotans prevent fatal and non-fatal unintentional injuries.

The Minnesota Injury Data Access System (MIDAS), maintained by the Minnesota Department of Health, provided a wealth of historical context for this report and identified Minnesota-specific injury trends. Rich content was provided by experts in specific injury areas, who participated in a series of meetings coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council (see pages 7 and 8 of the plan for a listing of topics and participants).

Note: All charts contained in this publication as well as additional Minnesota data, can be found in an accompanying 2020 Plan Chartbook (PDF; 14.4 MB).

Preventing Unintentional Injury in Minnesota: A Working Plan for 2020, is a publication of the Minnesota Department of Health, Injury and Violence Prevention Unit and is supported in part by funding from the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control.
