data.bayareametro.gov | Last Updated 6 Jul 2018

VITAL SIGNS INDICATOR Injuries From Crashes (EN4-6) FULL MEASURE NAME Fatalities from crashes (traffic collisions) LAST UPDATED October 2017 DESCRIPTION Fatalities from crashes refers to deaths as a result of injuries sustained in collisions. The California Highway Patrol includes deaths within 30 days of the collision that are a result of injuries sustained as part of this metric. This total fatalities dataset includes fatality counts for the region and counties, as well as individual collision data and metropolitan area data. DATA SOURCE National Highway Safety Administration: Fatality Analysis Reporting System CONTACT INFORMATION vitalsigns.info@bayareametro.gov METHODOLOGY NOTES (across all datasets for this indicator) The data is reported by the National Highway Safety Administration's Fatalities Analysis Reporting System. 2016 data comes from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to the Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), which was accessed via SafeTREC’s Transportation Injury Mapping System (TIMS). The data was tabulated using provided categories specifying injury level, individuals involved, causes of collision, and location/jurisdiction of collision (for more: http://tims.berkeley.edu/help/files/switrs_codebook.doc). Fatalities were normalized over historic population data from the US Census and California Department of Finance and vehicle miles traveled (VMT) data from the Federal Highway Administration. For more regarding reporting procedures and injury classification see the California Highway Patrol Manual (http://www.nhtsa.gov/nhtsa/stateCatalog/states/ca/docs/CA_CHP555_Manual_2_2003_ch1-13.pdf).
