    Indigenous people were hospitalised as a result of an injury at an average of 23,000 cases per year over the 5-year period 2011–12 to 2015–16. Rates of injury were much higher overall among Indigenous Australians (3,596 per 100,000 population) compared to non-Indigenous Australians (1,874 per 100,000 population) and the rate of injury among Indigenous females was twice that of non-Indigenous females.
