COMPARISON OF AGE FREQUENCY OF FATAL AND NON-FATAL MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT VICTIMS FROM SEVERAL INTERNATIONAL GEOGRAPHICAL AREAS

The study was formulated to test the Null hypothesis that the age frequency of motorcycle fatalities is the same as other populations of the motoring public. A data base was formed from age distribution of cycle fatalities from four sample populations, then compared with age frequency data of persons in cycle injury accidents. Further analysis involved comparison of general driving, accident and collision populations with the botorcycle fatal accident group, and to each when age distribution were similar. Null was used for all comparisons. Data indicates similar age distributions in cycle fatalities from the four samples, which are all urban-industrial areas, internationally separated. It was concluded that, concerning the single factor of age frequency, motorcycle fatality differs from the rest of the motoring public. /SRIS/
