When no filters are applied, the charts show all public, completed, non-duplicated poison exposures from 2016 through 05-20-2022 reported to webPOISONCONTROL

Age and Sex

Age by Sex

Shows count or percentage of cases by age group by sex for completed, nonduplicated webPOISONCONTROL cases. Ages are grouped as <6, 6-12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70-79 years. webPOISONCONTROL does not provide triage recommendations for infants younger than 6 months or seniors over 79 years due to the unique characteristics of poisonings in these more vulnerable age groups.

Click to apply filters to the age and sex distribution, by substance category (generic code or category), route, triage recommendation, outcome, month/year, etc.
