National Trends: Inspection Accuracy Measure

Good

Poor

The national Inspection Accuracy measure results show the number of States within each rating. A State’s accuracy rating is based on the percentage of the State’s evaluated inspection records matched with a carrier that is registered with FMCSA. These inspections occurred between 09/01/2016 and 08/31/2017. Learn how this rating is calculated.
info
Why this matters

Accurate carrier information helps FMCSA prioritize carriers for intervention that pose the greatest safety risk. Inspection records matched to a carrier that is registered with FMCSA are included on a carrier’s safety record and are used by the SMS to assess carrier safety performance.

Data Source: MCMIS inspection records for 12 months representing interstate carriers and intrastate carriers transporting hazardous material, and includes large trucks and buses.
How this rating is calculatedClose Popup

The Inspection Accuracy measure evaluates 12 months of data to determine your State’s rating. A record is evaluated if the date of the inspection 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; inspections that occurred after October 31, 2014, were not included in the evaluation.

evaluation period

This measure evaluates inspection records representing interstate carriers and intrastate carriers that carry hazardous materials, and includes large trucks and buses. It analyzes the inspection records with carrier information that matched to a carrier in the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS).

The percentage of matched records is determined by dividing the number of matched records by the number of total records evaluated. If the percentage of matched records is

  • 95% or more, the rating is GOOD
  • Between 85% and 94%, the rating is FAIR
  • Less than 85%, the rating is POOR
