The Columbia Study of Compensation for Automobile Accidents: An Unanswered Challenge

By Jr. Fleming James

Abstract

In 1932 Dean Smith wrote for this Review: The Report by the Committee to Study Compensation for Automobile Accidents is among the significant documents which have appeared in recent years. He referred to a report to the Columbia University Committee for Research in the Social Sciences which was made on the basis of a survey of the economic consequences of automobile accidents. The Columbia Study included an investigation of thousands of actual cases, which represented a fair sample of experience, both urban and rural, across the nation. It seems to me that this survey is probably the most significant contribution to the study of torts to appear so far in the twentieth century
