The aim of the study is to describe the inter-province differences in traffic accidents and mortality on roads of Iran. Two different risk indicators were used to evaluate the road safety performance of the provinces in Iran. These indicators are the ratios between the number of persons killed and injured in road traffic accidents and the number of accidents and counties population. Spatial analyses were performed to the mean annual rate of deaths and to the number of fatal accidents that were calculated for the 2007.
Global and local spatial autocorrelation analyses were performed to show whether the provinces with high rates of deaths–accidents show clustering or are located closer by chance. The spatial distribution of provinces with high rates of deaths and accidents was nonrandom and detected as clustered with significance of PThe application of spatial analysis and modeling of accident statistics and death rates at provincial level in Iran will help to identification of provinces with outstandingly high accident and death rates. This could help more efficient road safety management in Iran.
