Survey of Nursery Products: This CPSC survey of U.S. households will answer several research questions and help make sure that infant and toddler products are safe for children and parents.  

One goal of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is to study and develop safety standards for infant and toddler products, such as cribs, high chairs, strollers and bath seats. To assist in this important work, CPSC is conducting a survey of U.S. households with young children. The information collected will help make infant and toddler products safer for children and parents.

CPSC is the government agency charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard or that can injure children.

The survey covers a variety of different nursery products, including cribs, play yards, and bath seats. Click here for more information about these products.  Some of the key questions the survey will answer include:

  • How many nursery products are in U.S. households?
  • How many of these products are being used and how frequently?
  • What is the lifecycle of these products (i.e., how do people who own them acquire, use, discontinue use, and dispose of them)? 

Invitations to take the survey have been sent to a representative sample of U.S households. If you have received an invitation, you can take the survey here.
