Australian road traffic deaths are compared with those for other selected OECD nations in table 24.33. Australia's rate of 6.8 road deaths per 100,000 persons in 2009 was considerably lower than the rates of Poland (12.0), the United States of America (11.0) and New Zealand (8.9). However, Australia's rate was markedly higher than the United Kingdom (3.8), Sweden (3.9) and Japan and Switzerland (both 4.5).
Australia's rate of road deaths per 10,000 registered vehicles (1.0) was the same as the OECD median. For the countries listed, New Zealand had the highest death rate per 10,000 registered vehicles (1.2).
The number of fatalities per 100 million vehicle-kilometres travelled in Australia in 2009 is 0.7.
