Abstract

This technical report includes results from an exploratory analysis of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander injury mortality data and is intended to inform and improve future statistical reports. It details the methodology and related issues, the findings and discussion. Due to variations in the quality of Indigenous data between states and territories, data are reported in two regions: Region A includes jurisdictions where ascertainment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander status is thought to be relatively good; Region B includes jurisdictions where ascertainment is not as comprehensive. The mortality data demonstrate that Indigenous Australians experience much higher rates of injury mortality than the rest of the Australian population. Insights into patterns of occurrence may be applied to inform injury prevention strategies.
