Documentation

On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the UKDriverDeaths data set which pertains to Road Casualties in Great Britain 1969–84. The UKDriverDeaths data set is found in the datasets R package. You can load the UKDriverDeaths data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("UKDriverDeaths"). This will load the data into a variable called UKDriverDeaths. If R says the UKDriverDeaths data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("datasets") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the UKDriverDeaths R data set. The size of this file is about 3,608 bytes.


Road Casualties in Great Britain 1969–84

Description

UKDriverDeaths is a time series giving the monthly totals of car drivers in Great Britain killed or seriously injured Jan 1969 to Dec 1984. Compulsory wearing of seat belts was introduced on 31 Jan 1983.

Seatbelts is more information on the same problem.

Usage

UKDriverDeaths
Seatbelts

Format

Seatbelts is a multiple time series, with columns

DriversKilled

drivers

same as UKDriverDeaths.

front

front-seat passengers killed or seriously injured.

rear

rear-seat passengers killed or seriously injured.

kms

distance driven.

PetrolPrice

petrol price.

VanKilled

number of van (‘light goods vehicle’) drivers.

Examples

require(stats); require(graphics)
## work with pre-seatbelt period to identify a model, use logs
work <- window(log10(UKDriverDeaths), end = 1982+11/12)
par(mfrow = c(3, 1))
plot(work); acf(work); pacf(work)
par(mfrow = c(1, 1))
(fit <- arima(work, c(1, 0, 0), seasonal = list(order = c(1, 0, 0))))
z <- predict(fit, n.ahead = 24)
ts.plot(log10(UKDriverDeaths), z$pred, z$pred+2*z$se, z$pred-2*z$se,
        lty = c(1, 3, 2, 2), col = c("black", "red", "blue", "blue"))## now see the effect of the explanatory variables
X <- Seatbelts[, c("kms", "PetrolPrice", "law")]
X[, 1] <- log10(X[, 1]) - 4
arima(log10(Seatbelts[, "drivers"]), c(1, 0, 0),
      seasonal = list(order = c(1, 0, 0)), xreg = X)
