  • * Number with positive change in behavior (n) over number of respondents (N). Note analysis is not restricted to those endorsing risk behavior at baseline. Bicycle helmet use outcome includes only bicycle riders; driving after drinking outcome includes only drivers.

  • Positive change defined as any improvement on a Likert scale rating of frequency of use: “never,” “sometimes,” “usually,” “always.“

  • Positive change defined as improvement in dichotomized past 30-day prevalence.
