Title:Costing road traffic accidents in Nigeria: a note on methodology
Author:Arosanyin, G.T.
Periodical:The Nigerian Journal of Economic and Social Studies
Geographic term:Nigeria
labour force
traffic accidents
Abstract:The valuation of human resources destroyed in road accidents has provided the direction in road safety policy formulation in most countries. In Nigeria, however, road accident costing is still scanty and, where attempts have been made, they are usually not based on any of the conventional costing methods. The author reviews the existing road accident costing methods - the general proxy, gross output, willingness to pay, insurance, net output and court award methods - and proposes an appropriate method for Nigeria, taking into consideration the paucity of data, and the implications of the method for road accident data collection. His preferred choice is the human capital or gross output method. Bibliogr., ref., sum. [ASC Leiden abstract]
