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.
