STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF FIELD ACCIDENT DATA

This paper discusses five very basic considerations in the statistical analysis of field accident data. Although these points are not new, the paper brings them together to form a checklist which can be used to evaluate the credibility of statistical studies. The five points considered are: (1) Sampling Technique; (2) Random Variations; (3) Definitions, Missing Data, Data Accuracy; (4) Performance Measuring Techniques; and (5) Population Differences. These points are demonstrated by using a hypothetical restraint study as an example.
