About the research

This project applies a big data methodological approach to highway crash injury severity analysis. It will serve as a pilot project for the Big Data Analysis Lab for the Center for Transportation Studies at the University of Missouri – St. Louis. The research is examining crash data to prove a statistically significant correlation between age and gender, and crash victims’ injury severity.
