A study said males are more likely to have mental developmental disorders than female counterparts by more than three times, with patients younger than 10 years old or below accounting for 64 percent of the total.
The National Health Insurance Service said this on June 1 based on data for the past five years on health insurance claims payments.
As of the end of 2012, the number of patients hospitalized for developmental disorders for the past five years was 29,916, of which male patients took up 76 percent.
