The goals of this project include:

  • Define the distribution of crash risk among subpopulations from within the target population defined as “minority” and “lower-income.”
  • Identify the risk factors associated with the increased incidence of negative safety outcomes among at-risk subpopulations.
  • Determine the extent to which crash risk experienced in lower-income communities is a function of broader regional development patterns.
