We identified 211 cases of PFF affecting residents, which gave an incidence of 161 per 100 000 per year (92 per 100 000 per year for men and 176 for women). Three quarters of all fractures occurred to residents of urban areas and nearly all fractures were caused by falls indoors. There was a higher incidence in winter than in summer months.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50798||ISSN:||0002-0729||DOI:||10.1093/ageing/22.4.285||Source:||Age and Ageing[ISSN 0002-0729],v. 22, p. 285-288|
