Data Action Group


Mission and Vision

Mission:  To prevent injuries in Ohio using data and collaborative partnerships.

Vision:  Working together to create a safe and injury free Ohio.


Goal 1: Improve networking, communication and collaboration among injury/violence-related data owners and key stakeholders.

  • Explore statewide injury-related data sources by reviewing survey results and asking data owners to provide an overview for DAG members.
  • Make recommendations to the ODH Violence and Injury Prevention Program about new data products.  

Goal 2: Assess the quality and availability of existing data sources and opportunities for linkages or shared data products. 

  • Inventory existing injury/violence-related data products and create a resource list for stakeholders.   
  • Assess OIPP needs surrounding violence and injury prevention priority areas (i.e., prescription drug poisoning/overdose, falls among older adults, child injury including motor vehicle traffic, asphyxiation, falls and violence) and the availability of related state and local data sources.
  • Increase the quality and availability of statewide and county-specific injury-related data for planning, surveillance, and evaluation.
  • Provide updates to OIPP so that data informs priorities and prevention efforts.

Goal 3: Improve the availability and quality of existing violence and injury data sources through partnerships or linkages.
