Abstract

The continued high frequency of automobile accidents in the United States has prompted many and varied studies relating to the general traffic accident problem. Most studies have concerned the distribution of traffic accidents by large age groups, with little attention to the relation of data to specific ages or other factors which might affect results. Recent investigations tend to follow a more analytical approach. They have concerned the relation of certain accident factors on a county-wide basis (2) and of accident and violation involvement to age, sex, mileage driven and training of drivers (1, 4, 5). The present report concerns the analysis of traffic accident factors with respect to their distribution among highway patrol districts of the state of Iowa.
