The data used for the study was obtained over the internet. Much research was done, but the most accurate information found were annual rainfall numbers for the city of St. Louis. These numbers were obtained from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, through the National Weather Service website. They have records for annual rainfall that go back until 1837. The totals for 2007 and 2008 were unavailable. The numbers used for this study cover 23 years, 1983-2006. The problem with these numbers, as accurate as they may be is that they are only representative of the city of St. Louis and not the entire state. The only way this could be corrected is to gather several samples across the state and then use the average to represent the entire state of Missouri. No such information was available at the time of the study. The accident fatality numbers were obtained from the Missouri State Highway Patrol Statistical
