A Linked Police and Hospital Road Accident Database for Humberside.

By K.P. Austin

Abstract

The current system used to collect road accident statistics provides no detailed information on the injuries sustained, nor does it account for all the road accidents and casualties resulting from them. Other studies have attempted to link hospital casualty data to that contained on the police reports but with limited success. The method outlined here matches 97.3% of casualty records that should be matched with only 1.4% error. This will therefore provide a effective model to test the reporting rates of various groups and the injuries sustained by them
