This research proposal examines and analyzes seat belt usage by examining demographic and geographic information to determine if seat belt usage has increased nationwide, and if so, what effect this has had on traffic accidents and fatalities. It explains that research is obtained from other studies that have collected data from observation and surveys. Fieldwork studies are included. Controlled studies have been conducted on a large-scale basis and would be hard to recreate. This paper relies on comprehensive studies that have been conducted nationwide. The primary objectives of the data gathering throughout the course of the study obtains information that can:
? Determine if seat belts indeed save lives
? If there are correlations in some of the demographic data as to seat belt usages
? How successful law enforcement has been in increasing seat belt usage
To date, these studies indicate that there has been an increase in seat belt usage. This paper reviews and summarizes current available data to determine if the hypotheses proposed by this paper have been proven.

From the Paper:

"The purpose of this literature research and review is to investigate the work done by previous researchers on the issue of seat belt usage. My objective is to find current and relevant information on seat belt usage and determine if usage has increased; if enforcement efforts have had any effect and what are the results of increased usage. The research will attempt to support previous works that indicate that seat belt usage has contributed to saving lives in traffic accidents. Several large organizations have studied this problem and there is ample significant research to choose from. The majority of research information for this paper will come from the National Center for Statistics and Analysis Center (NCSAC), National Occupant Protection Use Survey (NOPUS), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT)."
