In , Ghana was rated as the second highest road traffic accident-prone nation among six West African countries, with 73 deaths per accidents. (Sarpong, ). Road accidents have great effect on any country's economy especially, a developing country, like Ghana. Statistics.   When it comes to improving children's literacy in developing countries, the vast majority of resources are focused on schools. But efforts to support reading in student homes and outside of school can have a significant payoff, according to a new study led by Stanford Graduate School of Education alumnus Elliott Friedlander and Professor Claude Goldenberg. A STUDY OF ACCIDENT RATES IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. Using published data a study was made of changes in accident rates with time in a number of developing countries. It was found that in almost all the countries, there is a continuing downward trend in fatality and injury rates per vehicle, Kenya and Zambia being notable exceptions.

Many developing countries like Indonesia have a serious road accident problem. Traffic accidents data in was recor cases that resulted in 28, people died, 26, people serious.   Death rates from road traffic injuries are high in LMICs – in , reaching 34 per , in the countries studied. By contrast, the average across the 35 countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in the same year was 8 deaths per ,   Globally, in , 51% of fatalities and 59% of disability adjusted life years lost due to road traffic injuries occurred in the productive age group. 2 Fatality rates among children are especially high in developing countries, as shown in fig fig2. 2. In the fatality rate for children aged years was per population in. Of all road deaths occurring globally each year, 74% are in developing countries and there has been a 5-fold increase in traffic-related deaths in Nigeria over the last 30 years (Odero et al., ). Moreover, there is a fatality per accident rate which can be 20 times higher than in developed countries (Jacobs and Sayer, ).
