A COMPARISON OF INJURY AMONG SEVERAL TAD VEHICLE DEFORMATION SCALES AND DEFINITION OF A 10 POINT OVERALL SCALE
This paper describes characteristics of the vehicle deformation scale known as the TAD Scale, and the conversion of that seven-point scale into a ten-point scale. It appears that the ten-point scale accounts for more injury variance than the seven-point scale, and therefore, may be more useful as a control variable in the study of such things as car size, belts, or other crash injury related variables.
