The Skandia Report: A Report on Children in Traffic.
Skandia Insurance Co., Stockholm (Sweden).
This study examined the traffic accidents in Sweden during 1968 and 1969 in which children up to and including the age of ten were actively involved. The major goal of the study was to illustrate the traffic behavior patterns of children in this age group. Data were analyzed under two broad categories: pedestrian accidents and bicycle accidents. Material involving 1,906 accidents is presented and evaluated according to the following factors: (1) age and sex of the children and the drivers; (2) injury to the child; (3) length of time the driver had been in possession of a driving license; (4) the traffic category of the child and the driver (type of vehicle, tricycles, or prams); and (5) the hour, day of the week and month when the accident occurred. Other information describing the accidents was obtained from sketches and the brief written accounts given to the police and reported to the Central Bureau of Statistics at the time of the accidents. An interpretation of the accident data is included at the end of each section of the report. (CS)
