    Article - En anglais



    This study evaluated the contributions of rural residence, alcohol use, and pedestrian fatalities to the high American Indian motor-vehicle crash mortality rate in Arizona.


    Records from the Fatal Accident Reporting System were used to examine mortality rates between 1979 to 1988.


    Americans Indian had increased relative risks in all motor-vehicle crash categories in all residence-gender groups.

    The percentage of excess mortality associated with alcohol varied from 36.8% to 66.7%, and the percentage associated with pedestrian deaths ranged from 27.2% to 55.4%. Conclusions.

    Efforts to reduce excess motor-vehicle crash mortality among Americans Indians should concentrate on preventing pedestrian and alcohol-related facilities.
