Evaluation of 2008 Colorado crash data reported to the MCMIS crash file
This report is part of a series evaluating the data reported to the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) Crash File undertaken by the Center for National Truck and Bus Statistics at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. The earlier studies showed that...
A New Model of Crash Severities Reportable to the MCMIS Crash File
The Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) Crash file has been developed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to serve as a census file of trucks and buses involved in traffic crashes meeting a specific crash severity threshold. Each state is responsible for...

This report is part of a series evaluating the data reported to the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) Crash File undertaken by the Center for National Truck and Bus Statistics at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. Earlier studies have shown that...
Buses involved in fatal accidents factbook 2007
This document presents aggregate statistics on buses involved in traffic accidents in 2007. The statistics are derived from the Buses Involved in Fatal Accidents (BIFA) file, compiled by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. The BIFA database is a census of all buses...

This document presents aggregate statistics on trucks involved in traffic accidents in 2007. The statistics are derived from the Trucks Involved in Fatal Accidents (TIFA) file, compiled by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. The TIFA database provides coverage of all...
Toward understanding the recent large reductions in U.S. road fatalities
From 2005 to 2009, U.S. road fatalities dropped by 22% (from 43,510 to 33,963). A reduction of such magnitude over such a short time has not occurred since road-safety statistics were first kept (starting in 1913), except for the reductions during World War II. The present study was performed to...
Drivers on unfamiliar roads and traffic crashes
This study was designed to investigate whether there is an increased risk of traffic crashes in the U.S. for out-of-state drivers-those drivers whose driver license was not issued by the state in which they were involved in a crash. Two analyses were performed. In the first analysis, we examined...
Survival in fatal road crashes body mass index, gender, and safety belt use.
Background: This study evaluated the associations of body mass index (BMI), gender, and use of safety belts with the survival of drivers involved in fatal road crashes. Method: The census data of all U.S. fatal crashes that did not involve pedestrians, bicyclists, or motorcyclists were examined for...
Appropriate analysis of CIREN data using NASS-CDS to reduce bias in estimation of injury risk factors in passenger vehicle crashes.
The Crash Injury Research Engineering Network (CIREN) database contains detailed medical and crash information on a large number of severely injured occupants in motor vehicle crashes. CIREN's major limitation for stand-alone analyses to explore injury risk factors is that control subjects...
