    Almost 22,000 people were hospitalised in the period from 2010–11 to 2014–15 as a result of injury which occurred on a farm; over three-quarters of them (77%) were males. Just over 71% of people hospitalised as a result of farm-related injury resided in Inner Regional and Outer regional remoteness zones. Injuries involving motorcycles and quad bikes accounted for 42% of hospitalisations in children aged 0–14 and 21% of hospitalisations in people aged 15 and over.
