Despite limitations it is clear that injury mortality and morbidity rates are several times higher for Indigenous Australians than for other Australians.

This report is a survey and assessment of information sources which are being used to inform or support prevention of injury in the Indigenous population, and to sources which could be used for this purpose. The findings of this survey are used as the basis for discussion and conclusions concerning directions for development of information sources.
