From: Age and the risk of All-Terrain Vehicle-related injuries in children and adolescents: a cross sectional study

  Moderate to Serious Mild Odds Ratio (95% CI)
n* = 592 (49.7%) n* = 599 (50.3%)
< 16 yrs-crude 350 (59.1%) 363 (60.6%) 0.94 (0.75, 1.19)
<16 yrs-adjusteda    1.45 (1.19, 1.77)
Male 422 (70.5%) 421 (71.1%) 1.03 (0.80, 1.33)
Driver 325 (54.9%) 294 (49.1%) 1.25 (0.96, 1.64)

  1. *n = total number of injuries
  2. Note: Head injury severity was missing for 54 people who sustained an ATV injury
  3. Reference = Mild injuries
  4. Significantly increased or reduced odds are bolded
  5. aadjusted for era, sex, driver status, region and helmet use
  6. For all other variables, the reference group is the alternative option (i.e. ≥ 16 yrs, no helmet, passenger, female sex)
