Accident Statistical Distributions from NASS CDS - An Update 2020-01-0518
The National Automotive Sampling System (NASS) Crashworthiness Data System (CDS) contains an abundance of field accident data. As technology advances and the database continues to grow over the years, the statistical significance of the data increases and trends can be observed. The purpose of this paper is to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date, reference resource with respect to commonly sought-after accident statistics. Charts include up-to-date accident distributions by Delta-V and impact direction with corresponding injury severity rates. Rollover data is also analyzed, as well as historical trends for injury severity, belt usage, air bag availability, and vehicle safety technology availablility.
