Calculation and comparison of trends in serious injury due to road trauma for Victoria

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned ReportResearch

Abstract

Whilst the definition of a fatality is clear, the definition of serious injury from road trauma has been problematic in Victoria over past years as it has been in many other jurisdictions. This report begins by providing a full background of the issues surrounding the measurement of serious injury from road trauma in Victoria over recent years. It then calculates a number of alternative measures of serious injury to produce demonstration time series that could potentially be used for road safety performance monitoring and road safety research.
