The National Road Safety Strategy 2011–2020 (NRSS) presents a 10-year plan to reduce the annual numbers of both deaths and serious injuries on Australian roads by at least 30 per cent.

Australia's performance in addressing serious injuries from crashes is difficult to measure because of the lack of a reliable, nationally consistent, source of non-fatal crash data.

This information sheet details the current data sources, their limitations, and efforts currently underway to improve data for serious injury reporting.
