MULTIDISCIPLINARY ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION DATA FILE. ENCODING AND TRANSCRIPTION OF NEW VARIABLES

Since 1969, the Highway Safety Research Institute at the University of Michigan has developed and maintained a computerized data set of all Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation (MDAI) reports. The main objective of the study was to improve the computerized information on fatal crashes in the MDAI data sets in two ways: (1) all fatal crashes were coded on a special form and a 'Fatal Factors File' or FFF data set was constructed from these forms, and (2) AIS coding for fatally injured occupants was redone to reflect the AIS76 modification to the injury scaling.
