Abstract

Incidence of emergency admissions for violent injury in 10-18y olds decreased in England and Scotland between 2005 and 2011, but more steeply in Scotland. To generate hypotheses about causes of these differences, we determined whether trends were consistent across admissions for three common types of adversity-related injury (violent, self-inflicted, drug/alcohol-related).
