Summary
This report provides information about the types and incidence of injuries that lead to hospitalisation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people. It compares hospital separations data from the National Hospital Morbidity Database for 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2013, for causes of injury for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in each group from infancy to young adulthood. Differences by gender and regional area are also reviewed. While Indigenous children and young people experience many of the same types of injuries at similar ages to non-Indigenous children and young people, they experience significantly higher rates of injury at a greater range of ages. Three of the external causes of injury that disproportionately affect Indigenous children and young people are burns - a leading cause of hospitalised injury among children less than 5 years of age, assault - with Indigenous children and young people are more likely to be victims of child abuse, neglect and sexual assault than their non-Indigenous peers, and intentional self-harm - the second most common cause of death from external causes
