Travis-CI Build Status

The neiss package provides access to the last five years of data (2013-2017) from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, which is a sample of all accidents reported to emergency rooms in the US.

It currently contains three datasets:

  • injuries: individual injury results
  • products: product code lookup table
  • population: population of the US by age, sex, and year

Inspired by flowing data.


neiss is not currently on CRAN but you can install it with devtools:

# install.packages("devtools")

But please note that this will take a while to download because the data is quite large.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
