Abstract: A single European-wide crash injury database, or a compilation of individual, comparable databases, would be of exceptional benefit to the legislation process at an EU level. A direct, data driven approach would allow identification of any safety problems at an early stage, and facilitate a quick and accurate evaluation of any new or remedial measures, including legislation, that may have been implemented. The aim of STAIRS is to make the first moves towards such a goal. It involves the standardisation of in-depth road accident data collection and methodologies that would provide the core data and basic framework for crash injury studies. It is intended that existing groups will be able to adopt the protocol within their existing studies but it is anticipated that the groups will normally add to it to reflect special research concerns. The protocol is intended to facilitate rather than restrict any investigations, so it does not prescribe a particular approach that must be adopted in every case. Rather it provides a set of requirements, for the final datasets in particular, in terms of the core variables and the case selection criteria that will lead to comparability of datasets. This will bring about a European-wide agreement on how to collect this type of information, and if followed, will lead to comparable databases being held in each country that adopts and follows the protocol developed.
