This report examined the associations between socioeconomic status (SES) and injury mortality in Australia and looked at the effects of SES on injury deaths by age group, by sex and by a selection of external causes of injury. Overall, there was a strong association between increasing socioeconomic disadvantage and the likelihood of injury. This association was most evident for transport crash deaths, unintentional poisoning deaths and male suicide deaths.
