Child Restraint Use in 2006 – Demographic Results

In the first-ever probability-based survey of the use of seat belts and child restraints by racial and ethnic groups in the United States based on data from motorists in transit, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that only 65% of Asian children age 8 to 12 who were not of Hispanic descent were restrained by these safety devices in 2006, a lower rate than for other children in this age group. This result is from the National Survey of the Use of Booster Seats (NSUBS). The NSUBS is conducted by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Other findings of the 2006 survey are reported in this fact sheet.
