For each injury or poisoning episode a person experienced in the past 3 months, IRWHERE2 reports the second location response the person provided for where she/he was at the time of the injury/poisoning episode. Response categories include: inside her/his home, outside her/his home, a school, a child care center or preschool, a residential institution, a health care facility, a street or highway, a sidewalk, a parking lot, a sports/athletic facility or playground, a trade and services area of place of business, a farm, a park or recreation area, a body of water (river, lake, stream, or ocean), an industrial or construction area, other public buildings, or some other location.


Prior to 2000, swimming pools and mines or quarries were included as possible places. Sidewalks were introduced as a response category in 2004.
