Abstract

The prevailing method for calculating mortality rates for deaths due to automobile accidents, as employed by the various public health agancies throughout the country, uses the total population as a basis. This may be a convenient method, but it is not entirely adequate, as can readily be seen by examining the ways in which the residents of a city contribute to traffic fatalities.
