FY 1977 IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NATIONAL ACCIDENT SAMPLING SYSTEM

The report presents a summarization of the actions planned in FY 1977, in the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA), which are directed at the implementation of the National Accident Sampling System (NASS). This system when completed will be a probability sample of approximately 18,000 accidents annually, which have been investigated by accident investigation technicians. The accidents will include passenger vehicles, trucks, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian involvements. The report discusses the integration of on-going programs into the NASS framework as well as specific tasks planned for the implementation of NASS. The planning represents the perception of the NCSA in FY 1977 and is subject to revision as experience is gained in the program. Subsequent annual reports on NASS implementation will incorporate such revision.
