Abstract

In a random survey of parents of school-aged children, 15% of the respondents reported that their children had sustained one or more school-related injuries during the previous month. Injured children were reported at a significantly higher rate at the elementary, as opposed to the secondary, school level The majority of injuries could be classified as minor, but over 3% of the children monitored consulted a health professional because of their injury, and 2% missed school and/or had x-rays taken. The survey achieved a high compliance rate, with little incompleteness of data. Sur un échantillon pris au hasard de parents d'enfants d'âge scolaire, 15% des répondants affirmèrent que les enfants s'étaient blessés une ou plusieurs fois à l'école au cours du mois précédent. Ce taux de blessures fut nettement supérieur à l'école élémentaire, par rapport au secondaire. Bien que la majorité de ces blessures aient été mineurs, plus de 3% des enfants concernés durent consulter un professionnel de la santé à ce sujet, et 2% manquèrent l'école et (ou) subirent des radiographies. L'enquête fut caractérisée par un excellent taux de réponse et un faible niveau de données incomplètes.
