A Regression Model for Predicting Road Traffic Fatalities in Ghana
by Open Science Repository Mathematics
The knowledge of accident rates in a country provides a useful tool for a comprehensive analysis of their causes as well as for their prevention. Smeed (1949) gave a regression model for estimating road traffic fatalities. This paper gives a modified form of Smeed’s regression formula for estimating road traffic fatalities in Ghana. The modified regression model was found to be relatively more accurate form for estimating road traffic fatalities in Ghana, than Smeed’s (1949) formula.Keywords:
