Is motor vehicle-related mortality a disease of development?*

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

20 Scopus citations


The effect of economic development on motor vehicle-related mortality was assessed using per capital GNP from 46 countries, Gini coefficients from 34 countries and mortality statistics reported to WHO. The data suggest that these commonly used indicators of economic development do not reliably predict a given country's current experience with motor vehicle-related mortality. Implications for health planners and traffic safety workers are discussed.
