Bi-annual road trauma data tables from the Australian Trauma Registry (July–December 2017)
This Excel sheet provides the first national summary tables of severe injury cases (admitted patients with an Injury Severity Score > 12) added to the Australian Trauma Registry between 1 July 2017 and 31 December 2017. Separate tables are presented for on-road transport, off-road transport, unknown transport and non-transport cases.
In this six month period there were at least 1350 cases on-road severe injury—more than 2 cases for every road fatality. On-road severe injury cases represent 7 to 8 per cent of on-road hospitalised injury cases. These tables were produced under a joint funding agreement between the Australian Government Department of Health and the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities.
