A total of 47 244 injuries, 7056 admissions and 99 deaths were analysed.
The overall mortality rate was 12.6/100000 per year (95% confidence interval (Cl), 10.2-15.3), the overall admission rate was 911/100000 per year (95% Cl, 890-932) and the overall hospital attendance rate was 6013/100000 per year (95% Cl, 5958-6067).
