Roadway Safety Data Dashboard - The FHWA Office of Safety announces the launch of the “New and Improved” Roadway Safety Data Dashboard! The data dashboard has been completely redesigned to improve usability and expand the capabilities of the site. Since fatality data can be very complex, the dashboard allows users to convert data into graphical displays that make it easier to see trends and make comparisons between States, MPOs, and regions. Using data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), users are able to generate charts and graphs to display the data elements that describe the crash, the vehicle and the people involved.
Some of the NEW features include:
- Condensed workflow with a single step-by-step procedure and drop-down menus
- New combinations of display and comparison options to include: types of collisions, persons involved, and location and setting
- Create and view multiple graphs in a single dashboard
- New display options to include line, spline, and area charts
- Generate a web link to share your dashboard
- View and export the underlying graph data into an Excel spreadsheet
- Edit graph options to easily change criteria of type of graph
The Office of Safety will continue to make updates by adding new features and data to the data dashboard to ensure this tool is beneficial and valuable to our safety partners. We are also interested in getting your feedback, so please let us know (good or bad) what you think about the data dashboard, what data or features would you like to see added, and any issues you may have experienced when creating your dashboard. For more information, please contact Danielle Betkey at Danielle.Betkey@dot.gov.
