Accidental fatalities in transport

  • Andrew W. Evans

Abstract

The paper considers accidents on the different modes of transport. Accidents have many kinds of unwanted effects, though the paper focuses on just one: accidental fatalities. The paper reviews the main official sources of accident data and considers the use of past accident data. It then offers data and discussion on the numbers of accidental fatalities per year, passenger fatality rates, major accidents and the fatalities imposed by transport on third parties. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of communicating these results. Copyright 2003 Royal Statistical Society.
