  1. a National estimates were produced by applying statistical weights provided by US CPSC’s NEISS to the unweighted counts. CPSC considers an estimate to be unstable if (1) the estimate is less than 1200; (2) the number of records used is less than 20; or (3) the coefficient of variation is greater than 33% (US Consumer Product Safety Commission 2017b).
