Abstract

During 2014-2016, children aged 6-17 years whose parent or guardian indicated the child had serious emotional or behavioral difficulties (EBDs) were almost four times as likely to miss >10 days of school because of illness or injury compared with children without serious EBDs (13.4% compared with 3.5%). Among children with serious EBDs, those aged 6-10 years were less likely (8.0%) to miss >10 days of school compared with children aged 11-14 years (15.6%) and children aged 15-17 years (19.5%). Among children without serious EBDs those aged 15-17 years (4.7%) were more likely to miss >10 school days compared with children aged 6-10 years (3.0%) and children aged 11-14 years (3.3%).
