The articles included in this bibliography describe the research work in all phases of the development and promotion of child restraint systems for the time period 1978-1982. Physicians classify the child passenger morbidity and mortality rates in epidemic proportions and urge their fellow health personnel to take an active role in educating the public. Psychologists discuss the effects of the use of child restraint devices on the behavior of child passengers. Engineers describe the development of new anthropometric child dummies which give repeatable results when used in dynamic testing procedures. Researchers compare the performance of rear-facing infant restraints with forward-facing varieties. Educators, medical personnel, social workers, police, and the courts all evaluate efforts to promote usage. Special emphasis is given the Tennessee Child Passenger Protection Law, the first of its kind in the United States. The articles included in this bibliography are arranged by subject area insomuch as is possible. In some cases where a study could logically fall into several subject categories, it is hoped that the subject index will lead the reader to locate the other emphasized topics. In addition to the subject index, an author index and list of addresses for publishers and sponsors are provided.
