Back to Washington PBRN Page


The Washington PBRN Quick Strike project examines local and longitudinal variation in funding for injury/violence prevention. Using WA state data, which is the only identified state that captures longitudinal data on local and state investments, this study will examine the value of injury/violence investments and correlate spending with measures of activity and proximal outcome measures over time.
