DESIGN FOR A NATIONAL EXPOSURE DATA SYSTEM (NEDS): RECOMMENDED FEATURES AND PROPOSED PILOT METHODOLOGICAL STUDIES

In conjunction with the National Accident Sampling System (NASS) which is being established by NHTSA to collect data on a nationally representative sample of accidents there is a need for corresponding data on exposure to the risk of accident so that reliable accident rates can be determined. The Highway Safety Research Institute was awarded a contract to design a National Exposure Data System (NEDS) and to plan a pilot test of this design. After extensive review of previous exposure research studies and evaluation of the various design alternatives available, a number of features of the recommended design were established. Not enough information was found in past studies to permit recommending the single most cost-effective household data collection procedures, and it is proposed that a pilot methodological study be carried out to provide the essential data base for this decision.
