State Data

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 comprehensive data on eligible crashes and inspections to focus resources to further reduce crashes. We can’t do it without you.

Each month, States are rated on reporting of safety data—this page provides States with a robust resource to view their ratings and measures, and learn how to improve data quality performance.

Measures: Crash Record Completeness

100%
CRASH RECORD
COMPLETENESS
100% of your State’s evaluated crash records have complete driver and vehicle information. These crashes occurred between 01/01/2016 and 12/31/2016. Your rating is good because your percentage is greater than or equal to 85%. Learn how this rating is calculated.
info
Why this matters

Complete driver and vehicle information helps FMCSA associate crashes to the right driver, vehicle, and carrier. Crashes are included on the driver’s and carrier’s safety records and are used by the SMS to prioritize carriers for interventions that pose the greatest safety risk.

How this rating is calculatedClose Popup

The Crash Record Completeness 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 driver information and vehicle information in fatal and non-fatal crash records representing interstate, intrastate, and non-motor carriers, and includes large trucks and buses.

The driver information evaluation includes the following: driver license number, driver date of birth, driver first name, driver last name, and license class. The vehicle information evaluation includes the following: Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), license plate number, vehicle configuration, cargo body type, and Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). In both evaluations, a record is considered incomplete if any of the required information is missing.

The rating percentage is determined by evaluating the completeness of the driver information and vehicle information separately and then averaging these results together. If the percentage of complete records is

  • 85% or more, the rating is GOOD
  • Between 70% and 84%, the rating is FAIR
  • Less than 70%, the rating is POOR, unless the number of records reported in current timeframe is less than 15 and the percentage of completed driver and vehicle information is less than 70%, in which case the rating is INSUFFICIENT DATA.
