    Presently, descriptions of rural trauma are compilations of national sample statistics and local data from states projected to rural areas.

    This study reviews all hospital discharges (36,866) for children (aged 0 to 18 years) from January 1985 through December 1990 in an entirely rural state.

    Fourteen percent of admissions (5,322) were due to traumatic injury and 63% of these occurred in boys.

    Injury rates were age dependant with children 15 to 18 years experiencing an incidence of 110/10,000; 10 to 14 years 55/10,000; 5 to 9 years 39/10,000; 1 to 4 years 35/10,000; and <1 year 39.5/10,000.

    Mean age for the entire population was 11.4+-5.7 years.

    Thirty-five percent of children had more than one major site of injury.
