MOTOR VEHICLE-RELATED MORTALITY AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. PART I: A GLOBAL ANALYSIS

The relationship between the process of economic development and motor vehicle-related mortality is assessed. Current mortality statistics and economic information from countries at varying levels of economic development are used. Using this method, little or no relationship is found between a nation's state of economic development as commonly measured and its current experience with motor vehicle-related mortality. Implications for health planners and workers in traffic safety are discussed.
