Successful State Motor Vehicle Data Linkage Systems: A New CDC/NHTSA Report
Valuable sources of state motor vehicle crash data include police reports and medical records, as they can provide information about risk factors and medical outcomes for crashes. Successful state data linkage systems are able to collect, link, analyze, and report on multiple sources of motor vehicle crash data.
To increase knowledge about successful state motor vehicle data linkage programs, CDC partnered with NHTSA to assess the facilitators and barriers to success. States can use the study results to design or modify their data-linkage systems.
Why is this important?
Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death and injury in the United States, accounting for 32,719 fatalities and 2.3 million injuries in 2013. Successfully linking motor vehicle crash data can help determine risk and protective factors for motor vehicle crash injuries. This information can guide decision-makers in which interventions to implement in order to help keep more people safe on the road.
