Burden of Disease and Injury

The 1999 Victorian and Australian national burden of disease and injury studies provided the first comprehensive overview of health status in Australia in 1996. A second study was completed in 2007 with results for the total Australian population and the Indigenous population (with summary) pertaining to the year 2003.
