VITAL STATISTICS OF PASSENGER-CAR OCCUPANTS FOR EACH VEHICLE SEATING POSITION

DISTRIBUTION CHARACTERISTICS FOR THE AGE, SEX, HEIGHT, AND WEIGHT OF PASSENGER-CAR OCCUPANTS ARE CALCULATED AS A FUNCTION OF THEIR SEAT POSITION WITHIN THE VEHICLE. THE DATA WERE EXTRACTED FROM HSRI ACCIDENT DATA FILES; CONSEQUENTLY THEY REPRESENT CONDITIONS FOUND IN ACCIDENT-INVOLVED VEHICLES ONLY. THE FINDINGS PRESENTED HERE DEMONSTRATE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN THE POPULATIONS UTILIZING THE VARIOUS SEATING POSITIONS. IT IS HOPED THAT THESE FINDINGS MAY PROVE HELPFUL IN RESTRAINT-SYSTEM DESIGN. /AUTHOR/
