Chapter 2 References and notes
1. ISD's preferred term for accidents is "unintentional injury" due to concerns that the term "accidents" underplays the preventable nature of many accidents. As SHeS used the term "accidents" in the 1998 and 2003 reports, and in the questionnaire asked of participants, this chapter will describe unintentional injuries as "accidents".
