'new' flinders road injury report

Discussion in 'Research, Studies, and Data' started by simon varley, Nov 23, 2011.

  1. while looking for a copy of the famous '38 times' report on road traffic injuries I came across a new report published by the same team in April of this year.


    significantly this new report focussing on the years 2000-2008 seems to come up with different numbers. the headline values are just as provocative, but the detail contains some gems.

    from p15 referring to motorcycle injury rates per 10,000 registered vehicles
    some states showing a reduction in injuries per 10,000 with ACT being a noteable exception

    from p18 referring to motorcycle injury rates per 100M vkt
    what they fail to mention is that the last 3 years of data how a stabilisation or even a reduction in the vkt value

    overall though this seems a MUCH better put together report than the previous 2009 one. It contains off road injuries and race injuries split out. It analyses pedal cyclist and pedestrian injuries in much greater detail than before

  2. Good information, but like all government ideas and actions, a little out of date!

    As long as they are public servants, I'm cool with that.
  3. And they are still quoting the same hopelessly unreliable vehicle kilometres travelled rates...
