INJURY SCALING RESEARCH

In an attempt to improve the usefulness of accident data for NHTSA's safety systems analyses, threat-to-life, disability, and (direct) cost scales are developed using somewhat limited existing accident and injury data. The resulting scales utilize data elements which are readily available from Level 2-type accident investigations, are easily automated, and are compatible with medical codes on other existing files.
