Figure 4.4.11: Population who always wear a seatbelt as passengers by sex
Percent of population (age 12+), Middlesex-London, Ontario and Peer Group 2013/14
In 2013/14 almost 90% of the population aged 12 and older reported that they always wear their seat belt as passengers in a vehicle.
This was slightly higher than in 2009/10, but the increase was not statistically significant. Similar increases from 2009/10 to 2013/14 were also seen in Ontario and the Peer Group and these were statistically significant (not shown).
Females were more likely to wear a seatbelt than males. The difference was statistically significant in both Ontario and the Peer Group, but not in Middlesex-London
Females in Middlesex-London were significantly more likely to wear a seatbelt than females in Ontario.
In Middlesex-London those aged 65+ were more likely to wear a seatbelt compared to younger people in Middlesex-London and compared to those 65+ in Ontario and the Peer Group (not shown).
