Investigating the part each relevant factor plays in explaining the different national rates of child pedestrian accidents. The objective is to identify whether safety policies have substantially improved the situation in one country compared to another and whether these policies are transferable.
Child pedestrian accident rates per head of population differ substantially between countries. It is know that factors such as trip patterns, traffic levels, road design, parental control and example, education, training and publicity are likely to affect these rates. It is also known that within each country accident rates vary between different social and ethnic groups and that these groups in turn are likely to follow different behaviour patterns and exposure to different road conditions.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
