Road death registration in the Netherlands; Comparing the different source files

SWOV researched the similarities and differences between data on the official number of road deaths (determined by Statistics Netherlands (CBS)) on the one hand, and data of crash registration BRON(based on the police registration and processed by Rijkswaterstaat) on the other. This research is of interest to traffic safety professionals because many road safety analyses are based on BRON, whereas BRON does not contain all fatal crashes, and the fatal crashes in BRON do not necessarily appear in the Road Death Statistics of Statistics Netherlands as well.
