Sociodemographic and socioeconomic factors relationship with drowning prevention strategies

Wood, Shelby
Abstract
Lower income and disadvantaged communities habitually have a higher drowning fatality rate. These communities often do not have access to safe swimming educational tools such as swim lesson programs, CPR certification courses, and properly fitting lifejackets. This study explores the prefacing concepts that contribute to why these communities have a higher drowning rate. Utilizing a one-way ANOVA, this study surveyed the student population at Oklahoma State University and compared individual’s access to various drowning prevention strategies in relation to their socioeconomic status.
