Injury is a major contributor to mortality, morbidity and permanent disability in Australia.
Most injuries requiring hospitalisation are the result of falls and transport accidents, while most deaths from injuries occur as a result of falls and suicide.
More reports and statistics on injury can be found under Hospitals and Life expectancy & deaths.
