State Data

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.

Crash Timeliness

Current Rating
Leading Indicator 77%

Your rating is

Good (100-75)
Fair (74-50)
Poor (49-0)
NOTE—INSUFFICIENT DATA: State has less than 15 records reported in current timeframe AND percentage of records reported within 45 days is less than 50%.
Why is This My Rating?
Your Crash Timeliness rating is good because your percentage is between 75-100%.
How is This Calculated?
80% of your State's evaluated crash records were reported within 45 days of the crash. These crashes were first uploaded between 03/01/2023 and 02/29/2024. Learn more about how this rating is calculated.
How to Improve My Crash Timeliness?
Use the data dashboard below to dig deeper into your data or access the following supplemental reports:
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: FMCSA experienced system issues from July 8 to July 20, 2018 that may have caused a delay in State SAFETYNET record uploads. As a result, States will not be held accountable for late records during this time - only records reported on-time will count towards the State Timeliness measure.

The Crash Timeliness measure 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, regardless of when the crash event occurred. 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.

In the example, the July 2022 evaluation looks at 12-months of uploads from May 1, 2021, through April 30, 2022. Crashes that were uploaded after April 30, 2022, were used to calculate the leading indicator.

evaluation period measure

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 45 days is:

  • 75% or more, the rating is GOOD
  • Between 50% and 74%, the rating is FAIR
  • Less than 50%, the rating is POOR, unless the number of records reported is less than 15, in which case the rating is INSUFFICIENT DATA.
