|Title:||Residence place as a risk factor in different types of fatal car accidents||Authors:||Leveau, Carlos M.
|Issue Date:||2013||Description:||The association between place of residence, population density, relief and type of event (collision or non-collision of the vehicle) has not been evaluated. The main objective of this study is to determine the differential factors associated with the occurrence of deaths of collision and non-collision automobile users in Patagonia, Argentina. A multiple logistic regression analysis was performed using as the dependent variable death by car accident (collision or noncollision of the vehicle) and sex, age, place of residence of the victim, relief and population density as the independent variables. Collision fatalities were related to areas of high population density, while non-collision fatalities were related to areas of low population density, mountainous landscape and place of residence of the victims outside the Patagonian region. The results obtained in this study indicate the need to develop differential primary prevention policies by place of residence of car occupants, focusing on Patagonia nonresident drivers and by emphasizing non-collision accidents.
