ESTIMATES OF THE SOCIOECONOMIC IMPACT OF IMPLEMENTATION TITLE II OF THE MOTOR VEHICLE INFORMATION AND COST SAVINGS ACT

Estimates are made of the first year effects of legislation regarding the gathering, analyzing, and disseminating to the public of information on the crashworthiness, damage susceptibility, ease of maintenance, and repair, and insurance costs of given makes and models of passenger cars. Volume one contains major findings. Two panels of experts, marketers and dealers estimated the effects on market shares of given make/models. Successive interrogations were made of each expert panel in an effort to obtain consensus estimates of the effects on gasoline and raw materials usage, dealer profit margins, costs of repair, and serious injuries and fatalities. Insurance effects and sociopolitical effect estimates were obtained.
