Research Methodologies and Statistical Approaches to Understanding Driver Fatigue Factors in Motor Carrier Safety and Driver Health

The objective of this project was to better understand driver fatigue issues and provide expert direction and support for future Agency research and methodologies. The Committee on National Statistics (CNSTAT), a component of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS)/National Research Council (NRC), conducted a panel study to identify optimal research and statistical methodologies to better understand driver fatigue. This study assessed the large amounts of data already generated by onboard electronic monitoring systems and naturalistic driving studies. NAS informed the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) of the panel’s findings, conclusions, and recommendations. A final report is available to the public.
