ANALYSIS OF THE NEISS (NATIONAL ELECTRONIC INJURY SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM) DATA FOR BICYCLE-ASSOCIATED ACCIDENTS

The report describes the Highway Safety Research Institute's continuing research effort sponsored by the Bicycle Manufacturers Association. This work began in 1974 with the study and evaluation of the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System operated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. That study looked closely at the operation of NEISS in general, and at the data produced by CPSC as they related to bicycle-associated accidents in particular. This year's report extends the analysis of the NEISS data to include the calendar years 1975 and 1976. The HSRI standard summary, which was developed earlier in this program, is provided for bicycle-associated accidents for this time period. In addition, analyses of data from selected in-depth investigations are reported.
