FACTORS RELATED TO MORTALITY FROM MOTOR ACCIDENTS IN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES IN 1970

For a number of European countries, an examination was made of the relationship between mortality from motor vehicle accidents and certain demographic and transport factors, such as vehicles per inhabitant, length of road network per area, percentage of total population in large towns, percentage of young (-19 yr) and old (65+ yr) in total population, etc. The statistical analysis was carried out using a multiple regression technique. It was estimated that the factors studied, account for about 3/5 of the observed variation in mortality from motor vehicle accidents in European countries in 1970.
