DETERMINANTS OF THE SEVERITY OF AIRLINE ACCIDENTS: A PASSENGER PERSPECTIVE. IN: PROCEEDINGS OF THE THIRTY-THIRD ANNUAL MEETING, TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH FORUM, OCTOBER 31 - NOVEMBER 2, 1991, NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA

This paper analyzes accident severity determinants from the perspective of the passenger. Specifically, determinants of the proportion of non-fatal injuries and the proportion of fatal injuries of aircraft accidents are investigated. Detailed data from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigation files on individual aircraft accidents are used in the analysis. Results indicate that the major determinants of accident severity are pilot experience, weather, and whether or not the flight involved commuter service.
