Statistic series

Consult here from May 31, 2022 the series updated with the year 2021 (except alcohol). The accident files (BAAC) have existed since 1952, which makes it possible to have statistical series on bodily and fatal accidents, and on the number of victims.

Comparative evolution of mortality and road traffic in mainland France from 1952 to 2021

The file includes a table with 3 columns:

  • The number of people who died instantly or within 30 days of the accident

In 2005, the definition of the killed "person who died instantly or within 6 days after the accident" changed and became "person who died immediately or within 30 days after the accident" and the definition of hospitalized injured "victim admitted as a patient in a hospital for more than 6 days” becomes “victim admitted as a patient in a hospital for more than 24 hours”.

This change in definition creating a break in the series in the count of deaths, an estimate of the number of deaths at 30 days from the number of deaths at 6 days, by applying the increasing coefficients (1.09 from 1952 to 1992, 1.057 from 1993 to 2003 and 1.069 in 2004), displays the long series from 1952 to 2017.

  • The billions of kilometres vehicles travelled until 2020
  • The ratio of 30-day fatalities per billion km travelled until 2020
