    • Urban–Rural Differences in Hip Fracture Mortality: A Nationwide NOREPOS Study 

      Solbakken, Siri Marie; Magnus, Jeanette H.; Meyer, Haakon E; Dahl, Cecilie; Stigum, Hein; Søgaard, Anne-Johanne; Holvik, Kristin; Tell, Grethe S.; Emaus, Nina; Forsmo, Siri; Gjesdal, Clara Gram; Schei, Berit; Vestergaard, Peter; Omsland, Tone Kristin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
