Seat belt effectiveness values are currently not available based on KABCO (K-Fatal, A-Incapacitating, B-Non-incapacitating, C-Possible, and O-No injuries) injury scale. Therefore, this study could serve as an initiative towards establishing a procedure to estimate benefits of seat belt usage based on State highway crash data.In this method, the model building starts with no variables in the model and variables are added one at a time based on the given ... The estimated Sommera#39;s D, Gamma and c statistics have considerably higher values indicating a good prediction capability of the model. ... The estimated regression parameter for the variable related to seat belt usage is - 0.83 with an estimated standard error of 0.098.
