The national Fatal Crash Completeness measure results show the number of States within each rating. A State’s completeness rating is based on the percentage of the State’s evaluated fatal crash records that were reported to MCMIS as compared to the number of fatal crash records in FARS. These crashes occurred in calendar year 2021. Learn how this rating is calculated.
 
States use the FARS/MCMIS Matching tool to help reconcile differences between the number of fatal crash records in the FARS and MCMIS databases.

Why this matters

Complete fatal crash reporting helps FMCSA prioritize carriers for interventions that pose the greatest safety risk. Crash records reported to MCMIS are used by the SMS to assess carrier safety performance and prioritize carriers for interventions. The SMS weights crashes based, in part, on the severity of the crash.
