Crash risk for low-income and minority populations: An examination of at-risk population segments and underlying risk factors

The goals of this project include: (1) Define the distribution of crash risk among subpopulations from within the target population defined as “minority” and “lower-income"; (2) Identify the risk factors associated with the increased incidence of negative safety outcomes among at-risk subpopulations; and (3) Determine the extent to which crash risk experienced in lower-income communities is a function of broader regional development patterns.
