The national Crash Consistency Overriding indicator results show the number of States within each rating. A State’s consistency indicator is based on the estimated number of non-fatal crash records reported. The crashes evaluated occurred between 09/01/2016 and 08/31/2017. Learn how this rating is calculated.

Why this matters

It is important to ensure that all crash records are reported to FMCSA. Crash records are used by the SMS to assess carrier safety performance and prioritize carriers for interventions that pose the greatest safety risk.

Data Source: MCMIS non-fatal crash records for 12 months representing interstate, intrastate, and non-motor carriers, and includes large trucks and buses.
How this rating is calculatedClose Popup

The Crash Consistency Overriding Indicator evaluates 12 months of data to determine your State’s rating. A record is evaluated if the date of the crash event—not the date of upload to FMCSA—falls within that 12-month range. As shown below, the range begins 15 months before the evaluation month, but excludes the most recent three months of data. In the example below, the January 2015 evaluation looked at the 12-month event date range November 1, 2013, through October 31, 2014; crashes that occurred after October 31, 2014, were not included in the evaluation.

evaluation period

This indicator evaluates non-fatal crash records representing interstate, intrastate, and non-motor carriers, and includes large trucks and buses.

The rating percentage is determined by dividing the number of non-fatal crash records in the current evaluation period by the average number of non-fatal crash records in the previous 3 years. If the percentage of non-fatal crash records reported is

  • 50% or more, your State is NOT FLAGGED
  • Less than 50%, your State is RED-FLAGGED.
  • Less than 50%, AND there are fewer than 15 records in the current evaluation period, AND there are fewer than 15 records in the previous three year average, the rating is INSUFFICIENT DATA.

Note: States that have an obvious and significant decline in non-fatal crash record reporting will be categorized as Poor in the Overall State Rating and the Crash Rating, without regard to their rating in other measures.
