The Bureau of Family Health’s (BFH) Injury and Violence Prevention Program collects information about the most common causes of injury and injury-related death in Louisiana. Our Data-to-Action Team (DAT) compares the data with national averages and trends, and looks for patterns over time. The team packages these data in reports, fact sheets, and dashboards that help people understand and use the most important pieces. These tools are meant to support programs and promote policies that keep Louisiana families safe. The dashboards are housed on this page, and you can find fact sheets and reports in the Partners for Family Health Data Center.
The Injury and Violence Prevention Program also works with communities to figure out what kinds of data and information is most useful to help guide local prevention projects. The dashboards below include some of the best available Louisiana data that our partners have found useful when planning and evaluating their violence prevention efforts.
