    This report examined the associations between socioeconomic status and injury morbidity in Australia and looked at the effects of SES on hospitalised injury cases by age, sex, Indigenous status and by a selection of external causes of injury. Overall, the results showed that the effects of SES varied. Generally speaking, rates of hospitalised injury were higher among people from the lowest (most disadvantaged) SES category compared with rates among people from the highest (most advantaged) SES category.
