Vol. 9 No. 2 (2021): March
Purpose of the study: To examine the satisfaction of the health status of RTI victims and to measure the association between the satisfaction of health status with the prevailing level of participation of RTI victims in various major life activities.
Methodology: This study follows a cross-sectional research design. A comprehensive interview schedule was designed and pre-tested before the actual process of data collection. For data analysis, SPSS v.20 was run for obtaining univariate, bivariate, and multivariate analysis.
Main Findings: At a bivariate level, it was found that RTI victims were having difficulty in walking, standing, sitting, and dysfunctional memory status had significantly associated with low health satisfaction. Furthermore, at the multivariate level, the victims with low educational status were more likely to report limitations in Major Life Activities (MLA), ultimately affecting their health satisfaction status.
Applications of this study: This research's findings can apply to such studies that emphasize the sociological perspectives for minimizing traffic crashes. Moreover, it also provides the role of education in controlling traffic injuries in the south Asian region.
Novelty/Originality of this study: This study is the first-ever attempt to determine the effects of MLA limitations on the health satisfaction status. Apart from describing the phenomenon from a sociological perspective, the article also enlightens the role of education in minimizing RTI injuries.
