  1. Absolute fracture rates for 2002 and percent change in 2017 as well as BGRs for both years, by age group and overall. Groups ‘S82.7 multiple fractures of the lower leg’, ‘S82.8 other parts of the lower leg’ and ‘S82.9 lower leg, part unspecified’ were grouped together as ‘Others’. Missing data regarding gender: Group distal tibia, 2017, 10–14 years, n = 1; Group lateral malleolus, 2017, 15–19 years, n = 1. BGR Boy: girl ratio
