Hospital separations due to injury and poisoning, Australia 2007–08

14 Sep 2012
Description

This report, covering injuries resulting in admission to Australian hospitals in the financial year 2007–08, is the sixth in the series which started in 2001–02.
The focus of the report is analysis of community injury (that is, injuries typically sustained in the home, workplace, street, etc.). The report also includes short sections on work and sports related injury, complications of surgical and medical care and residual injury such as adverse effects not elsewhere classified.
Trends are also covered in this report, as in the 2005–06 report (Kreisfeld & Harrison 2010). An estimated 394,505 community injury cases required hospitalisation during the twelvemonth period 2007–08 (230,676 males and 163,823 females).
