Road traffic accidents in Malaysia increase every year and are dangerous to everybody. So, the pattern of road traffic accident must be analyzed. Besides that, the mortality due road traffic accidents also increased every year. Therefore, the survival and mortality rate of the road traffic accident must be determined. In daily life, there are some peak times where accidents most frequently occur. Batu Pahat is one of the states in Malaysia that recorded the highest number of road traffic accidents every year. Rising of these incidents are often being associated with factors such as driving behaviors, driving perception, vehicle condition and others. In this study, Kaplan-Meier estimator will be used to find the survival and mortality rate. The Kaplan–Meier estimator can estimate time-to-event models with the existence of censored cases. For this study, the data of road traffic accidents will be obtained from Traffic Police Station at Batu Pahat, Johor.Based on the data analysis, the pattern of road traffic accidents at Batu Pahat was increased from year 2009 to 2011 and fluctuated from year 2012 to 2014. The highest mortality rate was in year 2009 while the lowest was in year 2013.
