    Abstract

    The age-standardised rate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people was 2.7 times the rate for non-Indigenous Australians for fatal cases and 1.3 times the rate for non-Indigenous Australians for serious injuries. Age-standardised rates of fatal and serious land transport injury increased with the remoteness of the person’s usual residence, regardless of Indigenous status. Fatal and serious injury rates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people did not change significantly.
