ESTIMATION OF THE COVERAGE OF NEW PROGRAMS BASED ON DRIVER INCIDENT DATA

The purpose of the program was to develop a computerized system for determining the number of registered drivers in the State of Michigan that might be affected each year by all major proposals that are concerned with the assignment of drivers to post-licensing control activities. Two tasks were completed: First, a data structure was designed to generate information necessary for system operation from the State's Master Driver Record file. Second, a frequency analysis program was written to count occurrences in this data structure for situations of interest. Pilot tests of the system have indicated that it can be a valuable, time-saving tool in program evaluation.
