Classification of diseases
page from NCHS, covers ICD-9 and ICD-10.
Those interested in the proposed new procedure coding system, ICD-10-PCS,
being developed as a replacement for ICD-9-CM, Volume 3, should see the

ICD External Cause of Injury Codes (E-codes)
Update on How States are Collecting and Using Cause of Injury Data, 2005
(PDF file, 138
KB) - The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, in collaboration
with APHA's Injury Control and Emergency Health Services Section and the
State and Territorial Injury Prevention Directors Association, has collected
and summarized 2004 information about state-based injury surveillance and
external-cause-of-injury coding guidelines and practices.

(Zipped, 439K). This is version 1.4, posted in August, 2004. This is a direct
link to a zipped Excel '97 spreadsheet-based listing of ICD-9-CM 'injury' E-codes and
their associated mechanism and intent groups (matrix) as defined by the Centers for
Disease Control (CDC). Its purpose is to enable research analysts to add intent, mechanism
and short descriptions of E-coded cases to datasets based on matching the proper
spreadsheet table region (data year) to the E-code field in patient data. This is a
file released to the public domain by staff and faculty from the
Injury Research and Control at the University of Pittsburgh.
