Over the past 15 years, through both the Partners for Child Passenger Safety (PCPS) study and the National Child Occupant Special Study (NCOSS), CHOP researchers and our partners have been dedicated to creating a system to collect supplemental crash data specific to children. Although collecting this data for a large population of children is challenging, it’s important to understand the mechanisms by which children are injured to determine how best to protect them in car crashes. Police crash reports provide a glimpse into this data, but digging deeper to understand pre- and post-event details offers a more complete picture of child injury.
