Table S6. Differences in crude and age-adjusted incidence of fractures of the metacarpals/carpal bones (except the scaphoid bone) in children, in boys and in girls aged < 16. from 1950/1955 to 1976–1979 (previously only reported as crude changes [6]) and to 2005–2006 (changes from the first to the most recent evaluated period), from 1976/1979 to 1993/1994 (previously only reported as crude changes [9]) and to 2005–2006 (changes from the period with the highest reported fracture incidence [6] to the most recent evaluated period) and from 1993 to 1994 to 2005–2006 (changes from the last reported fracture incidence [9] to the most recent evaluated period). Comparisons are presented as Rate Ratios with 95% Confidence Intervals (95% CI) within brackets. Statistically significant changes are bolded. (DOCX 13 kb)
