Numbers and rates are based on official hospital statistics from each region. All regions use International Classification of Disease (ICD) version 10 for hospital discharges in 2011. Only emergency inpatient hospital spells with an ICD 10 code for serious injury (in any diagnostic position) and an ICD10 external cause/intent code in the range V01-Y36 (in any diagnostic position) were included. A hospital spell is an unbroken period of time that a person spends as an inpatient in a hospital. The person may change consultant and/or specialty during a spell but is counted only once.

Note that the data in this table is a subset of the data in the table "Hospital admission counts and rates for all serious injuries in Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales." The current table by cause/intent can only include serious injuries that also have a cause/intent recorded.
