The International comparisons report, which presents summaries of fatalities and fatality rates for Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) nations and Australian states and territories is published yearly.

BITRE also publishes reports on road safety topics. The latest are Pedestrians and road safety, Impact of road trauma and measures to improve outcomes, Road safety of older Australians, Young adult road safety and Child pedestrian safety.
