THE COLLECTION OF NATIONAL TREND DATA ON ALCOHOL RELATED CRASHES FOR COMPARISON WITH ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECTS RESULTS. VOLUME 2. ASAP CONTROL SITE DATA

As a result of evaluations of the Alcohol Safety Action Projects (ASAP), a requirement was generated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for the development of a data base of alcohol-related accidents in communities with no alcohol safety programs (control communities). This data base could be used by NHTSA to determine whether changes in alcohol-related crashes in the ASAP Communities could be attributed to the projects or to trends in all communities. The objectives of the study were to select a group of control communities for ASAP communities and to collect monthly accident data from them for an eight-year period (1968-1975). Twenty communities were selected as candidate controls and then matched with the ASAP communities by a clustering technique. The final data base consists of data from 12 control communities that provided data for most of the eight-year period and were considered appropriate controls for one or more of the ASAP communities.
