Accident risk differs by age group and gender predominantly. For example, boys are more likely to sustain an unintentional injury than girls and children aged 1-4 are much more likely to be injured in fall accidents than children in the 15-19 age bracket. For children under the age of nine, falls are the leading cause of unintentional injury. For children 15-19, the leading cause of unintentional injury is struck by/against accidents.
