To focus Agency resources and reduce crashes, FMCSA relies on our State partners to provide accurate, comprehensive data. Each month, FMCSA rates States on their reporting of safety data. This page allows States to view their ratings and measures and learn how to improve data quality performance.
FMCSA recently re-evaluated the SSDQ measures and identified changes to ensure the data used to inform safety are of the highest quality possible. Log in with your FMCSA Portal user ID and password to preview these changes.

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 initial upload 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 records. These records were used to calculate the leading indicator, which forecasts where measures may be trending.
