ALCOHOL AND FATAL ROAD ACCIDENTS: ESTIMATES OF RISK IN AUSTRALIA 1983

This paper concerns the statistical relationship between the risk of a fatality and the age and sobriety of drivers in New South Wales, Australia. The estimation of this relationship is based on fatal accident data from New South Wales and non-accident or control data from South Australia collected between the hours of 5.00 AM and 3.00 PM. The results are presented in new ways. In particular, tables of 'accidents attributable to alcohol' and age specific intensity functions of 'risk attributable to alcohol' may be an aid to policy making.
