VARIATIONS IN THE NUMBER OF ROAD CASUALTIES IN DIFFERENT COUNTIES IN ENGLAND

In 1988 the casualty rate varied considerably in different areas in England - from 772 casualties per 100000 population in Surrey, 30 percent above average, to 399 in Tyne and Wear, 33 percent below average. Casualty rates in some counties had decreased whereas in others there had been an increase. Understanding why these differences occur could be useful if the target of a 30 percent reduction of casualties by the year 2000 is to be achieved. Some information is available for 46 counties in England and the difference in the casualty rates, the changes in the total casualties, and the changes in killed and serious injuries are considered separately in this paper.
