Is there a national survey in the US that tracks accidents causing
injuries by E code annually? E code is the supplementary
classification of external causes of injury and poisining under
ICD-9-CM e.g. motor vehicle traffic accidents = E810-E819. Can you
find me the link to past surveys from 1999 to present current year?

Couple of things:

--most reporting systems switched to ICD-10 right around 1999, so that
codes are now in the (very different) ICD-10 classification (for
instance, injuries are given V codes, rather than E codes).

--The CDC maintains a database based on ICD codes (ICD-9 for 1998 and
earlier, ICD-10 for 1999-2003, the most recent year available). 
HOWEVER, the database only includes data for fatal injuries.

--CDC has a separate database for non-fatal injuries.  It may use
ICD-10 coding (I'm not sure) but doesn't seem to offer an option for
outputting the codes.  In addition, the database only covers the year
