AN ANALYSIS OF TOTAL PROJECT IMPACT: ANALYTIC STUDY I. ANNUAL REPORT 1974: SECTION II

This analytical study contains an evaluation of total Project inpact for 1974 operations of the City of Phoenix Alcohol Safety Action Projects. The principal focus of this analytic study is on analysis of motor vehicle crashes as the ultimate performance measure which Project inpact can be determined. This assessment is approached from two distinct directions: First, accident patterns during 1974 are compared with crash trends establisled during the Project's baseline and prior operational years in order to gauge accomplishments during the most recent operational period; Second, accident trends are compared between baseline and gerational periods to assess overall Project influence on crash rates during the full three year active period. Statistically reliable changes in total crash freguencies were observed and in addition, a number of crash subsets were inspected. Blood Alcohol Concentration distributions of fatally injured drives were also examined, and profiles of sober drivers and pedistrians involved in fatal accidents were compared with profiles of persons who had been drinking. Finally, seven evoluation topics related to measurement of Project impact are discured.
