State Safety Data Quality (SSDQ) Measures Data-driven safety systems are vital to informing decisions that improve safety on the Nation’s roads—FMCSA relies on the States for accurate and complete data on eligible crashes and inspections to focus resources to further reduce crashes. We can’t do it without you.
Measure Name Description
Overall State Rating The Overall State rating is based on eight performance measures and one indicator, except measures with a rating of Insufficient Data.
Crash Rating The Crash rating is based on four performance measures and one indicator, except measures with a rating of Insufficient Data.
Crash Timeliness Measure This measure rating shows the percentage of the State's evaluated crash records reported within 90 days of the crash.
Crash Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Accuracy Measure This measure rating shows the percentage of the State’s evaluated crash records that have a valid VIN.
Crash Accuracy Measure This measure rating shows the percentage of the State’s evaluated crash records matched with a carrier that is registered with FMCSA.
Crash Record Completeness Measure This measure rating shows the percentage of the State’s evaluated crash records that have complete driver and vehicle information.
Fatal Crash Completeness Measure This measure rating shows the percentage of the State’s evaluated fatal crash records that were reported to the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) as compared to the number of fatal crash records in the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS).
Crash Consistency Overriding Indicator This evaluation indicates that the State's estimated number of non-fatal crash records reported is less than 50% when compared to the previous three year reporting average. States that have an obvious and significant decline in crash record reporting will be categorized as poor in the Overall State rating and the Crash rating, without regard to their ratings on other measures.
Inspection Timeliness Measure This measure rating shows the percentage of State's evaluated crash records reported within 21 days of the inspection.
Inspection Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Accuracy Measure This measure rating shows the percentage of the State’s evaluated inspection records that have a valid VIN for the first vehicle unit.
Inspection Accuracy Measure This measure rating shows the percentage of the State’s evaluated inspection records matched with a carrier that is registered with FMCSA.
Inspection Record Completeness Measure This measure rating shows the percentage of the State’s evaluated inspection records that have complete driver and vehicle information.

State Data Analysis Reports (SDARs) The SDARs were created to provide additional details on activity that may be occurring within a State not immediately apparent from the measure itself. These reports may support a State's endeavors to identify strategies for improving their overall State data quality.
SSDQ Measure ImpactedReport NameDescription
Crash Timeliness Measure Evaluation by Event Month This analysis report shows you the number and percent of timely and late records, helping you track improvements and spot emerging issues before they impact your State’s rating. While the Crash Timeliness measure aggregates the timeliness of all records in the 12-month evaluation period, this report breaks out timeliness by each event month in that period.
Crash Timeliness Measure Frequency of Record Uploads to MCMIS This analysis report shows how often your State is uploading crash records to FMCSA. Ideally, States should upload every business day.
Crash Accuracy Measure Records Reported by Agency and Badge # This analysis report associates reporting agencies and badge numbers with matched and non-matched crash records. This information can help you identify potential collection or processing issues affecting accuracy.
Crash Accuracy Measure Non-Matched Records This analysis report gives you detailed information that can help your State research and resolve your non-matched crash records. This includes report information such as number, date, and time, as well as agency and officer badge number; carrier name, address, and uploaded USDOT Number, as well as operation; and calculated information that indicates a possible lease or government vehicle.
Crash Record Completeness Measure Complete Record Analysis This analysis report shows you a broader view of your State’s completeness. While the Crash Record Completeness measure evaluates specific fields, this report breaks out completeness by all fields in each crash record.
Crash Record Completeness Measure Driver Evaluation by Event Month This analysis report shows you the completeness of each evaluated driver field in a format that can help track improvements and spot emerging issues before they affect your State’s rating. While the Crash Record Completeness measure aggregates the completeness of all records in the 12-month evaluation period, this report breaks out completeness by each event month in that period.
Crash Record Completeness Measure Vehicle Evaluation by Event Month This analysis report shows you the completeness of each evaluated vehicle field in a format that can help track improvements and spot emerging issues before they affect your State’s rating. While the Crash Record Completeness measure aggregates the completeness of all records in the 12-month evaluation period, this report breaks out completeness by each event month in that period.
Fatal Crash Completeness Measure FARS/MCMIS Matching Tool This tool helps reconcile differences between the number of fatal crash records in the FARS and MCMIS databases. While the Fatal Crash Completeness measure compares the number of records in each database, this report either matches the records or lists records that do not match.
Crash Consistency Overriding Indicator Non-Fatal Crash Completeness (NFCC) Tool This tool estimates how many non-fatal crash records your State should be reporting to MCMIS. While the Crash Consistency Overriding indicator checks for consistent reporting of non-fatal crash records when compared to the prior three year average, this tool generates a range into which the number is expected to fall based on the number of reported fatal records. The result reflects whether the reported number falls under or over the expected range.
Inspection Timeliness Measure Evaluation by Event Month This analysis report shows you the number and percent of timely and late records, helping you track improvements and spot emerging issues before they impact your State’s rating. While the Inspection Timeliness measure aggregates the timeliness of all records in the 12-month evaluation period, this report breaks out timeliness by each event month in that period.
Inspection Timeliness Measure Records Reported by County This analysis report shows you the number and percent of timely and late inspection records by the county in which the inspection was conducted. This can help you identify location-specific collection and reporting issues.
Inspection Timeliness Measure Records Reported by Inspection Level This analysis report shows you the number and percent of timely and late records by Inspection Levels 1 through 6.
Inspection Timeliness Measure Records Reported by Facility Type This analysis report shows you the number and percent of timely and late records by fixed and roadside facility types.
Inspection Timeliness Measure Records Reported by Inspector ID This analysis report associates Inspector IDs with timely and late records, which can help you identify potential collection or processing issues that are inspector- or agency-related.
Inspection Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Accuracy Measure Evaluation by Event Month This analysis report shows you the accuracy of VINs in a format that can help you track improvements and spot emerging issues before they impact your State’s rating. While the Inspection VIN Accuracy measure aggregates the VIN accuracy of all records in the 12-month evaluation period, this report breaks out accuracy by each event month in that period.
Inspection Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Accuracy Measure Records Reported by Inspector ID This analysis report shows you the accuracy of VINs by associated Inspector ID, which can help you identify potential collection or processing issues that are inspector- or agency-related.
Inspection Accuracy Measure Records Reported by Inspector ID This analysis report associates Inspector IDs with matched and non-matched inspection records, which can help you identify potential collection or processing issues that are inspector- or agency-related.
Inspection Accuracy Measure Non-Matched Records This analysis report shows you detailed information that can help you research and resolve your non-matched inspection records. This includes report information such as number, date, and time, as well as Safety Investigator (SI) code; carrier name, address, and uploaded USDOT Number, as well as operation; and calculated information that indicates a possible lease or government vehicle.
Inspection Record Completeness Measure Driver Evaluation by Event Month This analysis report shows you the completeness of each evaluated driver field in a format that can help track improvements and spot emerging issues before they affect your State’s rating. While the Inspection Record Completeness measure aggregates the completeness of all records in the 12-month evaluation period, this report breaks out completeness by each event month in that period.
Inspection Record Completeness Measure Vehicle Evaluation by Event Month This analysis report shows you the completeness of each evaluated vehicle field in a format that can help track improvements and spot emerging issues before they affect your rating. While the Inspection Record Completeness measure aggregates the completeness of all records in the 12-month evaluation period, this report breaks out completeness by each event month in that period.
Inspection Record Completeness Measure Driver Records Reported by Inspector ID This analysis report shows you the completeness of each evaluated driver field by associated Inspector ID. This information can help you identify potential collection or processing issues that are inspector- or agency-specific.
Inspection Record Completeness Measure Vehicle Records Reported by Inspector ID This analysis report shows you the completeness of each evaluated vehicle field by associated Inspector ID. This information can help you identify potential collection or processing issues that are inspector- or agency-specific.
