(a) Based on the International Classification of Deaths, Edition 10 (ICD10). Data in this table relate to year of registration of death based on death occurring up to one year following a transport accident. Data based on state of usual residence only. Data will therefore differ from the traffic fatalities shown in previous tables as data in those tables are based on year of occurrence of transport-related deaths which occur within 30 days of an incident.
(b) Includes vehicle accidents not elsewhere classifiable.
