Bi-annual road trauma data tables for the Australian Trauma Registry
This Excel sheet provides national summary tables of severe injury cases (admitted patients with an Injury Severity Score > 12) added to the Australian Trauma Registry. Separate tables are presented for on-road transport, off-road transport, unknown transport and non-transport cases.
In the latest six month period (1 January to 30 June 2018) there were at least 1622 cases of on-road severe injury—more than two 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.
