Abstract

Injury is the leading cause of death among adolescents aged 10-19 years and many more children and adolescents suffer injuries which require medical attention and may result in disability. It is important to understand the risk factors for adolescent injury to inform the development of appropriate policies and programmes. This briefing paper presents findings from the 2010 Health Behaviour in School-aged Children survey in Scotland on injury prevalence and its association with risk behaviours.
