R4: Completing the Picture of Traffic Injuries: Understanding Data Needs and Opportunities for Road Safety
Principal Investigator – Chris Cherry, University of Tennessee, Knoxville
This study introduced a new approach to evaluate road safety that focuses on the home address of individuals (i.e., home-based approach) who were directly involved in traffic crashes instead of the location of the crashes (location-based approach). While LBA explores the geographical distribution of traffic crashes by focusing on the location of traffic crashes, HBA considers the socioeconomics associated with the location of the person involved in the crash. This approach could be used to explore the road safety disparities by considering the factors surrounding home address of the crash victims. View full report.
