PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC ACCIDENT CHARACTERISTICS, TUCSON, ARIZONA
Computer coded accident report records (737) from 1968 to 1970 were used in an analysis in which the driver and pedestrian records were processed separately and then jointly. The analyses were conducted by simple percentage breakdowns of the categories within each variable, construction contingency tables and the employment of factor analysis techniques to isolate otherwise undetectable correlation among groups of variables. The study findings are grouped thus: general accident characteristics (14 aspects); multifactor findings (5 aspects); and findings revealed in additional analyses. Conclusions and recommendations based on the study are presented.
