Alexandra Hughes
Are these specified work related falls or falls at home? Do they differentiate?
Nancy Birkhimer
@alexandra: the falls data are reports for all locations. There may be data available of the location of the fall, but this data is not analyzed in that way.
Jo Morrissey
This PPT is available on the Maine Shared CHNA website: https://www.maine.gov/dhhs/mecdc/phdata/MaineCHNA/events.shtml
Jean Mellett
Is any of the data broken out by ethnicity/ race? Numbers may be low. thanks
Nancy Birkhimer
@jean: the state level data has been analyzed by race/ethnicity. This data will be part of health equity data sheets, reflected in the state report and on the interactive portal (coming soon!!)
Jean Mellett
Good to know-- thanks, Nancy!
Nancy Birkhimer
@jean, as you note, these numbers are often small, even at the state level, and we often combine 5-10 years of data to make them more reliable.
