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.

100%
INSPECTION RECORD
COMPLETENESS
100% of your State’s evaluated inspection records have complete driver and vehicle information. These inspections 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 an inspection to the right driver, vehicle, and carrier. Inspections 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.

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

The Inspection Record Completeness 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 driver information and vehicle information in Level 1, 2, and 3 roadside inspection records representing interstate and intrastate carriers, and includes large trucks and buses.

The driver information evaluation includes the following: driver license number, driver date of birth, driver first name, and driver last name. The vehicle information evaluation includes two data fields: vehicle license number and Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). In both evaluations, a record is considered incomplete if any of the required information is either missing or invalid.

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.
