Existing U.S. Army Accident Record data were analyzed, seeking relationships that would lead to recommendations for future routine analyses of such data which might help reduce the number and severity of accidents. Numerous computer analysis printouts were submitted to the sponsoring agency. The report describes project activities, distributional results, regression analysis results, and results from a method for comparing relative accident involvement rates. Characteristics of the existing record system and the types of analyses that can be conducted are also discussed. The general conclusion is that the present system seems adequate for inventorying accidents but not to identify human factors associated with on-and-off duty accident experiences to identify material and equipment design and use characteristics associated with on-duty accidents or to determine manvehicleequipment interactions and their influences on accident and injury incidents.
