  1. Absolute fracture rates for 2002 and percent change in 2017 as well as BGRs for both years, by age group and overall. Per- (S72.1) and subtrochanteric femoral fractures (S72.2) were grouped together. Groups ‘S72.7 multiple fractures of the femur’, ‘S72.8 other parts of the femur’, and ‘S72.9 femur, part unspecified’ were grouped together as ‘Others’. BGR Boy: girl ratio
