Including driver characteristics in a model of relative collision safety
2000 (English)Report (Other academic)
When the relative collision safety between different car makes has been estimated, it has been shown that a person's age and sex influence the injury risk in accidents that are otherwise similar. In an earlier work, relative collisionsafety in cars are studied. That model is now expanded by introducing parameters related to the driver's age and sex. Different models are compared and the "best" model is chosen by a likelihood-ratio-test. The estimated relative risks compensated for the driver's age and sex are compared to the relative risks without such information. The uncertainties of the different estimates are studied by a bootstrap analysis.
