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 their 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.

Your rating is

Good (100-95)
Fair (94-85)
Poor (84-0)
97% of your State's evaluated crash records matched with a carrier that is registered with FMCSA. These crashes were first uploaded between 09/01/2017 and 08/31/2018. Your rating is good because your percentage is greater than or equal to 95%. Learn how this rating is calculated.
NOTE: INSUFFICIENT DATA: State has < 15 records reported in current timeframe AND percentage of matched records is < 85%

Supplemental Reports
Data Source: MCMIS fatal and non-fatal crash records for 12 months representing interstate carriers and intrastate carriers transporting hazardous material, and includes large trucks and buses. (Excludes crash records entered per FMCSA’s "Procedures for Entering Crashes without Carrier Identification into SAFETYNET")
How this rating is calculatedClose Popup

The Crash Accuracy 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 January 2019 evaluation looks at the 12-month event date range November 1, 2017, through October 31, 2018. Crashes that occurred after October 31, 2018, were used to calculate the leading indicator.

evaluation period

This measure evaluates crash records representing interstate carriers and intrastate carriers that carry hazardous materials, and includes large trucks and buses. It analyzes the crash 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, unless the number of records reported is less than 15, in which case the rating is INSUFFICIENT DATA.
Why this mattersClose Popup
Accurate carrier information helps FMCSA prioritize carriers for intervention that pose the greatest safety risk. Crash 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.
