Rural and Urban Differences in Passenger-VehicleOccupant Deaths and Seat Belt Use Among Adults United States, 2014 https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/66/ss/ss6617a1.htm?s_cid=ss6617a1_e Laurie F. Beck, MPH; Jonathan Downs, MPH; Mark R. Stevens, MSPH; et al.
Motor-vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death in the United States. Compared with urban residents, rural residents are at an increased risk for death from crashes and are less likely to wear seat belts. In this report, data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System and the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System were used to identify passenger-vehicleoccupant deaths from motor-vehicle crashes and estimate the prevalence of seat belt use. States and communities can consider using evidence-based interventions to reduce rural-urban disparities in seat belt use and passenger-vehicleoccupant death rates.
