MULTIDISCIPLINARY ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION. VOLUME II
The document presents results of a comprehensive analysis of data collected on male drivers over the entire span of the project -- 1968 to 1975. Particular emphasis has been placed on multivariate statistical techniques, especially factor analysis and discriminant analysis. The primary data base consisted of responses to structured and unstructured psychosocial interviews and questionnaires, police reports, autopsy findings, and Motor Vehicle Administration records. The interrelationships among the emergent psychosocial factors and background variables, on the one hand, and situational variables surrounding the accident (such as alcohol involvement, legal culpability, fatality status, number of cars involved, etc.), on the other, are presented and discussed. Major substantive findings to emerge over the seven years of data collection are summarized, and recommendations for reducing the death toll on the nation's highways are made.
