Previously: National Health Survey: Accidents (ISBN: 0 642 16061 9)

Presents statistics and analysis of injuries reported from a four week period in 2001, collected as part of the National Health Survey. Information on these recent injuries include where they took place, who was injured, what activity was being performed, what type of event lead to the injury, the location and nature of the injury damage resulting, and what action was taken following the injury. Statistics on current long term conditions caused by injury are also presented, including the nature of the long term condition and whether the injury was sustained at work or school, playing sport, or in a motor vehicle accident. Selected risk factors, such as socioeconomic disadvantage, alcohol consumption, work-related injuries, and participation in sport and leisure are also analysed.
