Measurement
Period:
2011

What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of parents/guardians who report that their child "always" uses a seat belt or car seat (as appropriate for age/weight)
Why this is important: 
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for people between the ages of five and 34. Crashes also cause millions of serious injuries in the US every year. The simple act of buckling up is the best way to save lives and reduce injuries from crashes. Seat belts reduce the risk of being killed or seriously injured in a crash by about 50%.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the national value; national data are derived from the PRC National Health Survey. U.S. value is available, 2011.
