The organization recently released a study that gave each state in the U.S. an overall safety ranking based on how well they try to prevent accidents through state laws and policies. The report titled The Facts Hurt: A State-by-State Injury Prevention Policy Report used several indicators to rank each state on a scale of zero to five. Some of the factors used to determine each state’s overall safety include statistics related to:
• Drunk driving prevention and punishments
• Booster seat use
• Bike helmet laws
• Motorcycle helmet laws
• Seat belt laws
• Drug abuse
• Domestic violence
• Head injuries

Pennsylvania scored well for booster seats, head injuries, prescription drug abuse, intimate partner violence, and bicycle helmets, and the state ranked 30th overall in injury-related deaths. According to the results, for every 100,000 people in the state, 59.4 died of injury-related deaths.
