Injury hospitalisations vary by location.

The image below links to a dashboard of injury hospitalisations across Australia by state and territory. Statistics are also presented at the SA3 geographic level, aggregated across 3 years so that information for smaller regions can be reliably displayed. 

The dashboard allows you to select from external causes of injury to see how each one affects areas around Australia. There are two tabs to view:

  • a ‘Current trend’ tab displaying aggregate hospitalisations for 2019–20 to 2021–21
  • a ’10 year trend’ tab displaying how hospitalisations have decreased and increased

See the dashboard below:

For technical details about the data, see the Geography section of the technical notes.

Geographic influences are also reflected in the remoteness data sections discussed in the other sections of this report.
