Invandrare och trafiksäkerhet: förstudie. En analys av tillgängliga data i Sverige
Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute.
2001 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

Using existing public data sources, we have tried to describe some

traffic safety measures for

immigrant groups in Sweden. The study was made in three stages: A study of

the literature, a

survey of available data sources, and statistical analysis of some combined

data sources.

The results of the literature study were disappointing, an indication of

the limited interest in

these issues so far.

In the database survey, we found that there are some important sources

containing information

about traffic and road users. Unfortunately, not all of these can be merged

with the records of the

total population (RTB). Since RTB is the only data source that contains data

on the country of

origin, it is not possible to elucidate all aspects of traffic safety for

immigrant groups from existing

data. One example is that travel patterns cannot be described since the

travel pattern survey data

cannot be matched to RTB.

In the comparison of accident statistics, we did not study individual

countries but larger groups

of countries, a total of nine. The results indicate significant traffic

safety differences between these

groups of nationalities. Finally, we discuss some aspects of quality in the

data sources used. It is

concluded that the results must be interpreted with some care.
