Injury deaths data, Australia: technical report on issues associated with reporting for reference years 1999–2010

This technical report is a companion to the statistical report Trends in injury deaths, Australia 1999–00 to 2009–10 and provides additional information on data sources and methods.When comparing estimates of injury deaths based on Cause of Death Unit Record Files (CODURFs), produced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) with other supplementary sources of information for external causes of injury mortality, CODURF based estimates for particular major external causes were consistent with estimates based on supplementary sources for several reference years before 2003 and from 2006 onwards, but differ to a noteworthy extent for several external causes from 2003 to 2006.
