Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death and injury for canadian children
Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death and injury for Canadian children

Child Passenger Safety Conference


Vehicle Crashes for Canadian children

Transport Canada reports that over 75% of injured children were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash (2005)

Seat belts cannot offer adequate protection for children under 80 lbs. or less than 4’ 9” tall

Child Passenger Safety Conference


Why are children at risk? for Canadian children

85% of Canadian parents attempt to use some

type of safety system to protect their

children……..

But, only 15-20% use safety systems adequately

School aged children are at 10 times greater

risk of death or severe injury

Misuse or lack of use primarily responsible

Child Passenger Safety Conference


Correct booster seat use

Reduces child deaths by 71%

Reduces severe injury by 67%

What we need to know
What we need to know… for Canadian children

  • Why do practices vary?

  • How do practices vary?

  • How can we effectively alter practice?

  • What are the ideal attributes of an intervention?

  • How effective are these interventions?

Child Passenger Safety Conference


Phase one
Phase One for Canadian children

  • Discrete Choice Experiment

  • Online survey – multiple attribute choice tasks

  • 999 versions

  • Identify segments of population with similar booster seat utilization preferences

  • Demographic Profile – national, regional

Child Passenger Safety Conference


Discrete choice experiment
Discrete Choice Experiment for Canadian children

  • Used in market research

  • Enables researchers to test for “importance” and “values” placed on attributes of product

  • Can help to predict consumer behaviour related to changes in the product being tested

Discrete choice experiment1
Discrete Choice Experiment for Canadian children

  • Advantages:

    • Uncovers hidden (or real) biases or attitudes which may not come through on a simple ranking scale

    • Better reflection of “the real world”

  • Disadvantages:

    • Complex

    • Respondents may feel that choices are not “applicable”

    Importance of Attributes for Canadian children

    Child Passenger Safety Conference


    Findings for Canadian children

    Overall families reported that the key factors that most influence their booster seat use are:

    Awareness of the benefits of preventing an injury

    Booster seat regulations for height and weight

    Societal expectation to consistently use a booster seat

    Regular enforcement of booster seat laws

    Child Passenger Safety Conference


    Intervention Targets for Canadian children

    Raise awareness that booster seats prevent injuries

    Provide information on correct use - age, weight,

    height regulations

    Expect regular enforcement

    Create a social culture where using booster seats are

    an expectation – “the norm”
