Child Passenger Safety State of Knowledge

This project will produce a report in which each chapter contains a comprehensive systematic literature review that summarizes, evaluates, and synthesizes research published since 2000 on topics related to child passenger safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has previously published periodic “State of Knowledge” reports on a variety of behavioral safety topics. However, the current project represents the first on issues related to child passenger safety. The current project will apply systematic review procedures to comprehensively identify and evaluate the quality of studies on a selection of topics related to novice driver safety. Each chapter of the Child Passenger Safety State of Knowledge report will describe the selected studies, aggregate findings across studies, and weigh study quality to provide a synthesis of the best evidence to date on the topic. The State of Knowledge is intended to be a reference document for both in-house use and use by other Federal agencies, State Highway Safety Offices, and other partners. The report will also be of use to researchers interested in child passenger safety and non-profits involved in child passenger safety development and administration.
