Facts versus values : why legislators vote against injury control laws. Editorial comment.
Control of motor vehicle-related injuries depends upon passage of mandatory safety belt and other injury control laws.
Unfortunately, state legislators often oppose these laws.
In 1988, a 62-item questionnaire was mailed to the 97 Colorado legislators who voted on a 1987 safety belt law to identify factors (knowledge, experiences, attitudes, and beliefs) associated with « yes » and « no » votes.
To test for associations between these attributes and the legislators' recorded votes, odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (Cls) were calculated.
