The college of surgeons' pattern of injury survey has shown that mass collection of safety related data on a state-wide scale is feasible. The problems of collection are those of authority, money and personnel to provide organisation and supervision. These problems are relatively simple and capable of solution by appropriate action. The outstanding problem to be faced for the future is lack of uniformity, incompatibility of records with computer processing and lack of ready accessibility of information. This problem should be the first major task of any authority which seeks to collect information on a large scale. /TRRL/
