Notes and corrections:

Note: Table 3.7 'Non-traffic serious injury-mechanism of injury for persons seriously injured in land transport accidents; Australia, 2003?04' has been revised as there was a cut and paste error in the columns affecting this table only. The opportunity was taken to make some changes to the text, mainly for clarity. The main findings remain unchanged. The previous version of the report is available here
