This article provides a brief overview of the prevalence of recent injuries such as events which resulted in injuries where medical treatment or some other form of action was taken. Unless otherwise stated, this article presents information on injuries received in the four weeks prior to the interview for the 2004-05 ABS National Health Survey (NHS). It should be noted that the 2004-05 NHS excluded persons in hospitals, nursing and convalescent homes and hospices and hence the data relates only to persons in private dwellings. The article also draws on data from the 1998 and 2003 ABS Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers, the ABS Causes of Death collection, the 2001 ABS NHS and other ABS and non-ABS sources.
