  1. Evaluation of a subsidy program to increase bicycle helmet use by children of low-income families.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    We have previously shown that an educational program was not effective in increasing bicycle helmet use in children of low-income families.

    The objective of this study was to evaluate a combined educational and helmet subsidy program in the same population, while controlling for secular trends.

    The secondary objective was to complete a third year of surveying children's bicycle helmet use throughout the study community.

    Design

    A prospective, controlled, before-and-after study.

    Subjects

    Bicycling children 5 to 14 years of age from areas of low average family income.

    Setting

    A defined geographic community within a large urban Canadian city.

    Intervention

    In April 1992, students in three schools located in the area of lowest average family income were offered $10 helmets and an educational program ; three other low-income areas served as control areas.

    Main Outcome Measure

    Helmet use was determined by direct observation of more than 1800 bicycling children.

    Results

    Nine hundred ten helmets were sold to a school population of 1415 (64%). Reported helmet ownership increased from 10% to 47%. Conclusions.

    There has been a trend toward increasing helmet use in all income areas during the 3-year period.

    Despite encouraging helmet sales and increases in reported helmet ownership, the results of the observational study do not support the efficacy of a helmet subsidy program in increasing helmet use in children residing in areas of low average family i.
