This study finds that road death tolls, occupational fatality rates, and airline safety are strongly correlated across 92 countries, yielding a common factor: national societal accident proneness. It is independently predicted by national differences in transparency versus corruption and differences in education. This finding has important practical implications: Substantial reduction of a nation's societal accident proneness requires strong gains in transparency and education. Language: en
