The national Crash Timeliness measure results show the number of States within each rating. A State’s timeliness rating is based on the percentage of the State’s evaluated crash records reported within 90 days of the crash. These crashes occurred between 02/01/2017 and 01/31/2018. Learn how this rating is calculated.

Data Source: MCMIS fatal and non-fatal crash records for 12 months representing interstate, intrastate, and non-motor carriers, and includes large trucks and buses. Note: Since FMCSA's transition to the cloud in November 2016 resulted in a delay for State submissions, FMCSA is not including impacted late records in the State's Crash Timeliness measure. Crashes reported on-time will count toward the timeliness measure.
How this rating is calculatedClose Popup

The Crash Timeliness measure 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, the January 2015 evaluation looks 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 measure evaluates fatal and non-fatal crash records representing interstate, intrastate, and non-motor carriers, and includes large trucks and buses.

The rating percentage of timely records is determined by dividing the number of records reported on time by the number of total records evaluated. If the percentage of crash records reported within 90 days is

  • 90% or more, the rating is GOOD
  • Between 65% and 89%, the rating is FAIR
  • Less than 65%, the rating is POOR, unless the number of records reported is less than 15, in which case the rating is INSUFFICIENT DATA.
Why this MattersClose Popup

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 partly on the time elapsed since the crash occurred. The graphic below shows how the SMS time-weighting places more weight on the most recent crashes, highlighting the importance of reporting crash data promptly.
