Carbon monoxide is a common air pollutant in urban areas. To what extent this gas contributed to traffic accidents was the basis for an extensive study in Detroit, Michigan. A major objective of this study was the statistical estimation of the parameters of those variables which influence atmospheric carbon monoxide concentrations. Researchers have known that variations in carbon monoxide gas concentration in the atmosphere near streets can be partially explained by changes in meteorological and traffic conditions. To explore these questions, a statistical experiment was designed and executed in the city of Detroit. In addition, air sampling with the carbon monoxide recorders was conducted at two additional locations.
