Chapter 1-B : ACCIDENTS BY CONTRIBUTING CIRCUMSTANCES This section deals with the circumstances that contributed to accidents in 2001. The totals in this section represent the number of accidents and the number of contributing circumstances that relates to those accidents. The total number of reported accidents is somewhat less than the total number of contributing circumstances and the number of drivers because each accident could involve one or more drivers and one or more contributing circumstance.

Chapter 1-C : ACCIDENTS BY POPULATION GROUPING In this section, accidents are grouped according to the population characteristics of their location. Three (3) categories are used: rural, urban (population 5,000 to 49,999), urbanized (population 50,000 to 99,999) and metropolitan (population 100,000 or greater). Currently, the metropolitan boundaries have not been established; therefore, all metropolitan accidents have been included in the urbanized grouping.

Chapter 1-I : ACCIDENTS BY VEHICLE TYPE In this section, the types of vehicles involved in the accidents are reviewed. The totals shown represent all vehicles as a separate accident; therefore, the vehicle totals will not agree with the accident totals.
