||Accurate estimates of the incidence of hospitalized work-related injuries are not currently available from national hospitalized data sources in Australia. This study uses New South Wales hospitalization data to quantify the variation in estimates and compare the profile of work-related injury that arise from the use of different variables within morbidity data to define the work-related status of an injury. It is concluded that hospital data should be linked to additional data sources for an improved reliability in determining the occupational nature of an injury.
