This is the final report of the 1974 Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation (MDAI) Data File contract. It contains a summary of contract accomplishments and a discussion of data preparation, data files and the data system. Appendices include a list of all contract documentation and an index of all automated MDAI report DOT-HS publication numbers. About 10,000 clinical accident investigations have been conducted to-date (March 1975). These reports sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Association, and the Canadian Department of Transportation, are being edited and processed into a common data base. All sponsors are also being provided direct access to the data base through the University of Michigan's time-shared computer system via remote batch and interactive terminals. The data base contains data recorded on an annotated "Collision Performance and Injury Report."
