Use of DOT-compliant motorcycle helmets was at 65.3 percent in 2016, not statistically different at the 0.05 level from 60.7 percent in 2015. This result is from the National Occupant Protection Use Survey (NOPUS), the only survey that provides nationwide probability-based observed data on motorcycle helmet use in the United States. The NOPUS is conducted by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA) of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
