388. Road Accidents with Casualties, 2003
387. Road Accidents with Casualties, 2004
The Central Bureau of Statistics builds annual accident files from Israel Police's current report of road accidents. The Traffic Police records every accident with casualties and later on, updates it with data from hospitals and other sources. The whole system of reporting road accidents is now being reinvestigated by a public committee established for this purpose. An accident record contains the time and place of occurrence, including road conditions, major factors leading to the accident and its severity, description of casualties and details concerning the vehicles and drivers involved, excluding identifying data. For accidents occurring on urban roads, the locality code, street code and house # are listed as well. For inter-urban roads, the road, road section and kilometer are listed. As of 2003, a few geographical identifiers have been added for both the place of accident and the residence locality of the involved persons. An index of road sections and road codes for these years is available in a separate file. An accident (case) record consists of one line per accident and a variable number of lines for vehicles and for involved persons who can be injured persons, drivers in the involved vehicles or both. ( N=18,288 accidents in 2003 and 18,266 in 2004).

382. Traffic Counts on non-Urban Roads, 1999-2004
The source of this 6 years' data is the traffic counts carried out by the Central Bureau of Statistics by means of mechanical counters installed on non-urban roads, which measure the traffic passing over a certain road section. . Motorcycles and motor-scooters are not counted. The counts are carried out once every year, for a week each time. The counts are represented by date, day of the week and hour. Holiday, and holiday eve and intermediate days of holidays (Hol Hamoe'd) are indicated. This data is used for road and safety planning. When related to accidents data on the same road parts and junctions, they are used for estimating the traffic safety of each road part. ISDC holdings include annual traffic counts on non-urban roads from 1983 on. See datasets # 380, 381, 392, 395, 397.
