During 2013−2015, the percentage of children and teens aged 4–17 years who had ever received a diagnosis of ADHD was significantly higher among boys than among girls within all urbanization levels.

Among boys, those living in small metro and nonmetro micropolitan areas were more likely to have received a diagnosis of ADHD (17.4% and 16.4%, respectively) than were those living in large central (11.4%) and large fringe (12.7%) metropolitan areas.

Among girls, those living in large central areas were less likely to have received a diagnosis of ADHD (4.4%) than those living in each of the other five types of urban/rural areas.

QuickStats: Age-Adjusted Rate of Motor Vehicle Traffic Deaths by Urbanization of County of Residence — 2005 and 2015

June 7, 2017

The overall age-adjusted rate of motor vehicle traffic deaths in the United States decreased 25% from 14.6 deaths per 100,000 population in 2005 to 10.9 in 2015.

During this period, the rate declined in each of the county groupings, with the largest decline of 26% in the large fringe metropolitan and micropolitan counties and the smallest decline of 20% in rural counties.

For both years, the rates for motor vehicle traffic deaths were higher in nonmetropolitan areas than in metropolitan areas.

In 2015, the age-adjusted rate in rural counties was nearly three times the rate for large central metropolitan counties (23.0 compared with 7.9 per 100,000).
