LONGITUDINAL STUDY OF CALIFORNIA DRIVER ACCIDENT FREQUENCIES I: AN EXPLORATORY MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS
The longitudinal study attempts to develop an optimum accident prediction system using nine year driving history records of a large sample of California drivers and biographical and mileage exposure data collected through a questionnaire survey. An exploratory non-concurrent regression analysis on three year accident interval produced a prediction equation with 29 predictor variables and a multiple correlation coefficient of .271. Among the variables which discriminated between accidents and non-accident drivers were prior conviction frequencies and prior accidents. Drivers with prior accidents and convictions were more likely to have accidents in subsequent time periods.
