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.
