Tonight I propose to deal with two subjects which seem to be too large and awkward to fit into a general study of transport yet not sufficiently large and lacking sufficient data to justify separate studies. Since they also, I think, illustrate some of the uses and limitations of statistical methods of a certain kind they seem to be appropriate subjects to be considered at a meeting of this kind. The subjects I propose to consider tonight are expenditure on transport as a proportion of the nation's resources or of its national income, and the question of the cost of road accidents. Both studies will refer to the Irish situation but, as I shall try to show, the problems encountered have a general significance.
