AN ANALYSIS OF GUARDRAIL AND MEDIAN BARRIER ACCIDENTS USING THE LONGITUDINAL BARRIER SPECIAL STUDIES (LBSS) FILE, VOLUME II: USERS GUIDE

In this study the Longitudinal Barrier Special Studies (LBSS) file was cleaned up for use in examining the "real-world" performance of longitudinal barriers. The cleanup included some recoding of variable definitions, correction of erroneously coded data, and the addition of missing data, specifically impact speeds. Also, as part of the cleanup, all data elements pertinent to data analyses were extracted and included in the main analysis file. This report is meant to serve as a data element dictionary and a guide to using the LBSS file for analysis purposes.
