DESIGN FOR NASS: A NATIONAL ACCIDENT SAMPLING SYSTEM. VOLUME II. APPENDICES

A design is presented for a national accident investigation program based on sampling theory. By limiting the number of investigations within a strict sampling plan it is possible to record sufficient detail about each accident to produce national estimates of injury, property damage, and other accident characteristics which will be useful in cost-benefit analyses. The system described has three major facets--a program for continuous acquisition of data of a random sample of all towaway-pedestrian-bicycle-motorcycle accidents occurring in the U.S., a program for occasional acquisition of additional data on selected topics quickly and on-call, and a program for conducting in-depth or multidisciplinary accident investigations for accidents of particular interest.
