Application of Demographic Analysis to Pedestrian Safety

The objective of this project is to develop a demographics-based methodology that identifies low income areas that possess a combination of "pre-conditions" for greater pedestrian hazard, such as areas with a large percentage of residents living below the established poverty level, low levels of car ownership, high transit use, etc. This methodology should also produce recommendations for not only engineering countermeasures such as roadway lighting, signalized crosswalks, but also for pedestrian safety education/outreach plans that will resonate with a given area's demographics.
