Child Passenger Safety: Charts and Images from PCPS

From 1997 to 2007, data was collected through Partners for Child Passenger Safety (PCPS), a unique industry/academic research partnership with the goal of providing the nation’s only large-scale child-focused crash surveillance data system. This data provide a scientific foundation for legislative action and have been utilized in state and federal initiatives focused on strengthening child occupant restraint laws. The charts and images below are organized by the year of data collection and may be downloaded for non-profit, educational use with attribution given to the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

In 2014, these charts were updated with generous support from the Association of Global Automakers.  Global Automakers, which represents international motor vehicle manufacturers, original equipment suppliers, and other automotive-related trade associations, works with industry leaders, legislators, regulators, and other stakeholders in the United States to create public policy that improves motor vehicle safety, encourages technological innovation and protects our planet.
