Estimating global road fatalities - full report

In order to provide the GRSP with an update of the road safety problem worldwide, a study was undertaken by TRL. The methodology undertaken was based on official reported road fatalities, i.e. police databases, but adjusted to accommodate the following 1) countries without any published road fatality statistics, 2) updating reported road fatalities to the current year (1999), and 3) under-reporting.
