CARE accident data
CADaS - The Common Accident Data Set (D 1.14) is a common structure including a minimum set of standardised data elements. In this way, more variables and values with a common definition will be added to those contained in the CARE database, thus maximising the potential of CARE database and allowing for more detailed and reliable analyses at European level.
Risk exposure data
Recommendations for collection and exploitation of risk exposure data (D 2.5) focuses on specific recommendations for data collection and use towards a good benchmarking of different geographical areas. It takes into account the following indicators: population; driver population; vehicle fleet; road length; vehicle-kilometres; and, three traffic and mobility exposure data (person-kilometres, number of trips and time in traffic).
Safety performance indicators
Safety performance indicators (SPIs) are measures (indicators), reflecting those operational
conditions of the road traffic system, which influence the system’s safety performance. Beyond the theory (D 3.6; D 3.11b & D 3.11c), a SPI manual (D 3.8) and recommendations for developing a European data base (D 3.12) have been published.
Recommendations and manual
Independent accident investigation
Beyond a bibliographical analysis (D 4.1) and considerations on the necessary transparency of accident data bases (D 4.2), a set of Recommendations for Transparent and Independent Road Accident Investigation has been published (D 4.5)
Independent accident and injury data base
Two types of data bases have been investigated in parallel: (i) a fatal accident data base, and (ii) an accident causation data base. As a follow up of methodological developments (D 5.1 to D 5.4), a glossary of data variables (D 5.5) and a manual on accident causation analysis ("DREAM", D 5.6) have been published.
Analysis and manual
Two types of statistical analyses have been investigated: multilevel modelling and time series. A methodological report (D 7.4) and a manual (D 7.5) have been produced. Eventually, several series of analyses including several sets of data have been performed.
