Title: Factorial Design and Model for the effect of National Road Safety Strategy Two (NRSS II): A Case Study in the Northern and Ashanti Regions
Authors: Ayamah, Richard
Issue Date: 3-Oct-2011
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to use factorial design to investigate the effect of the second National Road Safety Strategy (NRSS II) in the reduction of Road Traffic Accident (RTA), and also find a model for adequate description of the various observations in the data for the number of RTA recorded by Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (M.T.T.U) of the Ghana Police Service. Two-factor factorial design with mixed factors ( with region as the random factor and accident nature as the fixed factor) was used for the presentation and analysis of the data of the yearly number of RTA for the period 2006-2009 recorded by the regional branches of M.T.T.U in the Northern and Ashanti regions of Ghana. It resulted that the campaign on the NRSS II helped in the reduction of the seriousness of RTA. Also, a mixed-effect model was found be adequate in the description of the various observations in the data for the number of RTA as about 92.91% of the variability in the number of RTA is explained by the region, accident nature and the region-accident nature interaction.
