The prevalence was higher in rural areas (15.8 per ten thousand) than urban areas (9.9 per ten thousand), and higher among boys (16.3 per ten thousand) than girls (11.9 per ten thousand). Moreover, the older children tend to have a higher prevalence of disabilities due to injury than the younger children.
