Industry Classification System, 2002, including establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and

The primary source of injury identifies the object, substance, or exposure that directly produced or
inflicted the injury. For most transportation incidents, the primary source identifies the vehicle in which the
deceased was an occupant. For most falls, the primary source identifies the surface or object contacted.
4
The secondary source of injury, if any, identifies the object, substance, or person that generated the
source of injury or that contributed to the event or exposure. For vehicle collisions, the deceased's
vehicle is the primary source and the other object (truck, road divider, etc.) is the secondary source.

For most homicides, the "bullet" is the primary source and the "perpetrator" is the secondary source.
