Estimation of the prevalence of drink-driving in the general driving population : methodological issues and data quality (English)
Drink-driving is one of the largest traffic safety problems in Sweden and a number of measures are taken to reduce the problem. However, drink-driving is only one of many problems and in the process of prioritising among traffic safety measures, different problems are assessed in relation to each other. It is therefore important to know the extent of the problem. The aim of this study has been to describe and examine different sources that are connected to drink-driving, and for each source elucidate methodological issues and data quality. Furthermore, the aim has been to assess the different sources' potential of estimating the extent of drink-driving in the general driving population. The results of the evaluation reveal data quality problems and inadequate reporting. Moreover, the task of estimating the size of the drink-driving problem is associated with a number of methodological difficulties. A number of suggestions for improving the present statistics are given at the end of the report.
