This research analyzes systematically the time periods between road accidents and resulting deaths and elucidates the effects on them of a number of factors. The distribution of these time periods is also examined and the fitting of statistical distributions to the observed distribution is attempted. The effect of age and sex was investigated and the use of statistical distributions for the description of the observed distribution of time till death are proposed. The study found that considerable numbers of persons injured in road accidents die during treatment in the hospital. Details are given of the data collection, analysis, and time till death. Ways are indicated in which analytical results could be used for establishing uniformity in recording road accident deaths so that valid international comparisons may be made.
