This report provides an estimate of the economic cost of injuries due to accidents at home, at school, in sports and other leisure activities in Norway. These estimates, like most economic estimates, represent relative values encumbered with considerable uncertainty. Primarily there is an uncertainty in the injury figures per se. Despite of the uncertainty, the estimates could be interpreted as implying that decision makers, from an economic point of view, with reasonable certainty can allocate considerable resources to prevent home accidents, school accidents, sports accidents and leisure accidents.
