Work related mortality and hospital admissions among migrant workers in Australia, 1991-2010
OBJECTIVES: One in four of the Australian population is born abroad, with skilled migration encouraged since the mid-1990s. The shift from an industrial to a service based economy has seen a decline in recent decades of work-related injuries (WRIs) and related mortality in Australia. We examine deaths and hospital admissions from WRI, among foreign and Australian-born workers. METHOD: Work-related mortality and hospital admission rates were derived from tabulated data from the 1991 to 2011 censuses, 1991-2002 national deaths and hospital admissions for 2001-2010. Comparisons across country of birth...
