Data and Reports

Data Dashboard
The CFPS Data Dashboard is a valuable data resource that partners across Colorado can access to learn more about data from the Child Fatality Prevention System, Colorado's public health child death review and prevention process. The data in this dashboard represents aggregated data collected through individual reviews of the deaths of infants, children, and youth under 18 who die in Colorado. The dashboard provides counts, rate, and circumstance data on the leading causes and circumstances of death across Colorado: child and youth suicide, child maltreatment deaths, sudden unexpected infant deaths, motor vehicle and other transportation deaths, firearm deaths, unintentional drowning deaths, and unintentional poisoning or overdose deaths.

The CFPS Data Dashboard is one way to report aggregated data compiled and prepared following the end of each annual review cycle and is updated on or before July 1st each year. Data from 2018 were added to the dashboard at the end of June 2020. The dashboard now includes a full ten years of data. New to the dashboard this year are links to the CFPS 2014-2018 Data Briefs (see below), where readers can learn more about the impact of policies and systems on child deaths and disparities in the data. For questions about the dashboard, please reach out to Sasha Mintz, CFPS Epidemiologist (sasha.mintz@state.co.us).

Legislative Reports 
The State Review Team generates an annual legislative report for the Colorado General Assembly. The report includes recommendations for preventive actions and policy improvements to promote the safety and well-being of children that are based on the aggregated data from the local team reviews.
