In Denmark, official statistics concerning road traffic accidents are based upon police recordings. In this study, these official data are compared to data from the emergency room at Odense University Hospital from the period 1980 to 1992. The purpose is to examine whether the official statistics show a reliable picture of the development in accident numbers compared to data from the emergency room. The results confirm that it is necessary to use data from the emergency room to describe the true development in numbers of bicycle accidents.
