  2. aActivity E-codes (E-codes E001-E030) describing activities resulting in injury were added to ICD-9-CM starting October 1, 2009 (Bronnert 2009)
  3. bDuring the period 2010–2014, NC DETECT collected up to five E-codes describing the type of injury. For emergency department visits with more than one E-code, preference was given to ED visits with more specific E-codes (“1”) over visits with less specific E-codes (“7”). For ED visits with more than one E-code of the same specificity level, assignment was based on the first-listed E-code
  4. cFor each category header, the level of specificity is the mode for that category
