On the basis of two specially designed questionnaires, this research aims to show the traffic and accident analysis priorities prevailing today in the European countries, and to describe the availability of data on accident and exposure at European level. The analysis of the survey’s results through detailed comparative Tables showed that, today, model-based road accident analysis at European level has a great potential. Priorities and necessities for model-based road accident analysis at European level are rather well defined and sufficiently converging among experts from the various countries. Moreover, a lot of useful variables are available nowadays for all or almost all countries, providing sufficient information in order to fulfil these priorities and necessities for modelling in road accident analysis. However, further work is required, especially in the field of availability and compatibility of accident, exposure and additional information variables and the respective values contained in these variables.
