[[br]] For 2004-2006, MVC ED treat-and-release visit rates were higher for females over age 15 than for males in the same age groups. Sex differences for those under age 15 were not statistically significant. Overall, the 18-19 age group (202.0 ED visits per 10,000 population) followed by the 15-17 age group (164.2 ED visits per 10,000 population) had the highest MVC ED treat and release rates. After the teen years, as age increases, MVC ED visits decrease. Children (age 0 to 14) had the lowest overall MVC ED visit rate (with 33.3 MVC ED treat-and-release visits per 10,000 population).
