The document is the final report of a two-year research effort performed during the period between July, 1972 and September, 1974, in Bernalillo County, New Mexico. The research was designed for a trilevel approach, and included samples of both fatal and nonfatal accidents. Level I was a compilation of police-reported data on about 3000 alcohol-related accidents. Level II was a sample of 220 of the more severe Level I accidents which were individually investigated. Human, environmental, and vehicle data were gathered and analyzed. A human profile was derived on the basis of the demographic descriptors and alcohol use diagnosis. Level III was a sample of 15 MDAI cases selected from Level II which were reported in individual case reports during the contract period. The objectives of this level were to establish in-depth casuality, vehicle crashworthiness and driver personality factors.
