Abstract [en]

This report provides a review of Swedish experiences concerning the national road traffic accident information system STRADA (Swedish Traffic Accident Data Acquisition). STRADA contains information on accidents occurring in the Swedish road transport system as reported by the police, and medical data on persons injured as reported by the hospitals. By combining data from two sources, the STRADA system can provide more comprehensive information on both the circumstances and the consequences of road traffic accidents. The aim was to provide a review of accident and injury data in STRADA, including methods for collecting, sharing and analyzing the data. The primary focus is on the injury data provided by the hospitals and how these can be used in conjunction with police data. The main results provided in this report are descriptions of how the STRADA database is structured and what data are available, how the police and hospitals collect data, and how the data are made available to various stakeholders. The report describes the organizations involved in maintaining and developing the STRADA system and a number of examples of how hospital data has been used in various projects are also provided. Information about STRADA was compiled mainly from material provided by the responsible authority – The Swedish Transport Agency. In addition, a literature review was performed in order to identify examples of how hospital data has been used in different projects. The report was commissioned by the Belgian Road Safety Institute (BRSI).

Abstract [sv]

Informationssystemet Strada (Swedish Traffic Accident Data Acquistion) innehåller information om olyckor som skett i det svenska vägnätet och inrapporterats av polis samt medicinsk data om personskador som inrapporterats av sjukhus. Detta notat ger en översikt av nyttjandet av denna databas. Genom att kombinera de två källorna kan Strada ge omfattande information om såväl omständigheterna som konsekvenserna av trafikolyckor. Syftet med rapporten var att ge en översikt av olycks- och skadeinformationen i systemet, samt de metoder som används för datainsamling, tillhandahållande av data och dataanalys. De främsta resultaten i rapporten är beskrivningar av hur Strada-databasen är strukturerad och vilka data den innehåller, hur polis och sjukhus samlar in informationen och hur data görs tillgängligt för de olika aktörerna. Huvudsakligt fokus är informationen om skador som sjukhusen tillhandahåller och hur denna kan användas tillsammans med polisens information. Dessutom beskrivs de organisationer som är inblandade i att underhålla och utveckla Strada. Forskarna ger också ett antal exempel på hur sjukhusinformation har använts i olika projekt hittills. Fakta om Strada är främst sammanställda utifrån material framtaget av den ansvariga myndigheten Transportstyrelsen, dessutom har forskarna utfört en litteraturstudie. Översikten är framtagen på uppdrag av Belgisch Instituut voor de Verkeersveiligheid (BIVV).
