Abstract: Reliable epidemiological data is required for planning and commissioning services, however, identification of head injury admissions is difficult due to ambiguity in terminology and patient population. More than one source is necessary for completeness of data, however, data issues such as comprehensiveness, reliability and inclusion criteria/possible bias need to be considered.
