Research Objective - To examine trends in road injury hospitalisation rates for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in Western Australia. While the trend for road injuries in the total population has been decreasing in Western Australia since the 1970s, it is not clear whether this same pattern is also evident for Aboriginal people.
