The Transport Research Centre of the Ministry of Transport commissioned the Institute for Road Safety Research SWOV to participate in the second 'Accidents in the Netherlands' survey. The telephone interviews of more than 25.000 households were carried out during the period from August 1992 to July 1993. The goal of this survey was to establish the total numbers of four different sorts of accident, and to compare these with the first survey of 1986-1987. As far as the road accidents were concerned, an additional goal was to compare the results with other important road accident registrations. In comparison to the results of the previous survey the number of accidents falling within the (international) definition for police registration was not significantly changed. The number of medically treated injured was almost 30% more than in the first survey. A comparison with the accident data from the Traffic Accident Registration of the Ministry of Transport, shows that the registration level of recordable accidents was about 20%. Completeness of the registration appeared dependent on severity of injury, age and mode of transport.
