Minnesota Injury Data Access System

What is MIDAS and what does it do?

To support its mission of preventing injuries in Minnesota, the Minnesota Department of Health has developed MIDAS, the Minnesota Injury Data Access System. It will enable you to more easily learn about the injury and violence data for Minnesotans, whether for a specific county, for a type of injury, or by gender, timeframe, or other factor.
