Contract Report: Australian Indigenous Road Safety

Macaulay, Jemima, Thomas, Rachel, Mabbott, Nick, Styles, Tanya, Edmonston, Colin, Sheehan, Mary C., & Schonfeld, Cynthia C. (2003) Contract Report: Australian Indigenous Road Safety. ATSB Report, RC2321. Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), Canberra, ACT.


Indigenous Australians are over-represented in road fatalities by approximately 3.5 times 2. Until recently, there has been a lack of research in this area, and quantification of the road safety problem has been difficult due to poor reporting of crashes and complexities with the identification of Indigenous people.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
